I had the privilege to join in this session once during my short visit to Glasgow. It was lovely! The people were friendly, the music was great, and the atmosphere was just as it should be…

Re: Islay Inn

Is this session only Irish music, or are other tunes welcome?

Re: Islay Inn

@Ada the Monday session is mainly Scottish with Irish, Cape Breton and some other European tunes. Thursday is mainly Irish, but any tunes are welcome.
