Tim Adams Irish Flutes - handmade in Sweden
Hi all# Added by TimAdams .
If anyone knows anyone who’s looking for a fine handmade Irish flute in Grenadilla (African Blackwood), please send them to the address above. I’ve just launched the 2016 Tim Adams Irish Flute and would like to get the word out. You can see it and hear it at adams.se/flute.
I’m new on Flutemaker Street (2 years) and I’m offering a well made instrument that you can try before you buy. 4 weeks after you order, it’s in the post. How about that!
Thanks to thesession.org for a great and wonderful service! And to all who contribute to it!
The Ivy House Irish Music Session
Our friendly group of musicians meet every Tuesday evening around 8.30pm in any one of the three bars of The Ivy House on Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE, to play mostly Irish traditional music on fiddles, flutes, pipes, accordions, etc.# Added by Juste O'Curran-Twomey .
All competent players are welcome to join us. We are a tolerant session so we also welcome earnest improvers and even the occasional (well-behaved & competent) guitarist & bodhránist, maxing out at one of each of these.
But not spoons or shaky eggs.
We have provided some of our repertoire on our Tune List - please refer to the page on the link address.
We will take bookings for events such as acoustic gigs and other sessions - please refer to the page on the link address.
The Ivy House, London’s first co-operatively owned pub, has become a pivotal part of the local community of Nunhead and the nearby areas of Peckham, East Dulwich, Honor Oak Park and Crofton Park.
