New Traditional Irish Music Session

New Traditional Irish Music Session starting Sunday 4th December 2005 6pm - 9pm at The Woodbine, 215 Blackstock Road, London N5 Tel: 020 7354 2387 Tube: Arsenal. Bus: 4, 19, 106, 236. Tradition musicians and supporters welcome. Landord Niall seems very keen to get a regular session going so I’m hoping a good few sessioneers will come along to help it get off the ground. With Mick O’Connor (Tenor Banjo), Barbara Hackett (Accordion) and Mick Bailey (Guitar/vocals) Info Tel: 020 7267 7737 mbailey@belsizesquare.freeserve.co.uk http://www.belsizesquare.freeserve.co.uk/sessions.htm

A pub named after a cigarette? Are we allowed to play the reel called The Dunne Hills?

Lives up to its name …

i.e. it was *very* smoky. But I guess we just have to suck that up here in England until we get some decent laws to give us some clean air to breath πŸ™‚

However, the music was wonderful. It’s friendly, and not too fasht by London standards. Mick even gave us a bit of Jimi Hendrix on the banjo πŸ™‚

Nice venue

Played at The Woodbine for the first time 4th Dec. Nice venue, women friendly, no carpet and wood paneling making a good sound, owner Niall and manager Keiron both seem really keen. It really has the right "feel" of a place where a session could really run and run. We can’t do 18/12/05 but I’m hoping to keep the session going with alternative musicians. The session will be closed 25/12/05 and 1/1/06.

… I didn’t notice that the women were *that* friendly πŸ™‚

Somebody hit him for me, will you? πŸ™‚
