Where has everyone gone? (Manchester, UK)
Registered an account here just to ask the question, where have all the sessions gone? I moved away from Manchester about 20 years ago when there used to be a thriving Irish scene. Came back recently and it’s all gone!? Chorlton Irish gone, St. Kents still there but dead and no sessions, Garvey’s closed. Can’t find any sessions advertised online. Looked up some names I remember and no record of them playing anymore.
I used to know a few tunes but forgotten the majority. Need some people to sit with and remind me of what I used to know but where does everyone play these days? Is it like this everywhere or is it just the North West scene that’s died?
