  • Re: Coast Ceili Band

    Not that I know of. Coast Ceili Band and another one called the Corner House played at a festival I was at last year. They both sounded good. But I don't know of any others. There was a Canberra Ceili Band once I think but I haven't heard of them for a wh... more…

  • Coast Ceili Band

    Just got a reminder that these guys are playing in Sydney tomorrow night 28th March. A great band. Sadly I won't be in town so if you manage to get along let me know how it goes. I see merro has posted an event notice with a clip. Worth a look. more…

  • Great video clip. I think that's taken at the ceili i was at last year. I love this band. Really exciting music. I'd like to be there tomorrow night but my work takes me out of Sydney quite a bit and I'm going to miss this one. more…

  • Re: To pay or not to pay!

  • To pay or not to pay!

    Be interested to hear any thoughts about sessions (and I'm sure there are a ton of them) where a core of two or three musicians get paid. more…

  • Are you the session orgainiser? I get to Perth with my job at times so I hope you keep the info up to date. I've had some bad experiences in Oz turning up to sessions that seem to no longer run. more…
