This session is a fairly small gathering of musicians playing a lot of everything! Great if you want to pick up lots of new tunes as the common ones don’t tend to get played as often…unless i start one of course!

All the musicians are great guys

There is the odd song but there’s no unaccompanied singing like at the nearby Tap and Spile.

What time do you kick off there? Early/late evening? Afternoon?

WhistlinLeeds…it kicks off at about 8 o clock / 8.15 in the evening.

A cracking session (for listening)

Popped in last week - very friendly lot - standard is very high and so is speed. Old-Timey tunes of which I knew very few and they aren’t easy to follow. Mainly fiddles & strings plus eng.conc./melodion
As it was well out of my comfort zone, they did play a few English tunes for my benefit!
An important session for going and listeming - beginners and good musicians all have something to learn here (unless you are already into Old-Timey)

The best york session.

great mix of tunes and the occasional song. and the loveliest regulars.
they were very encouraging to me when i came in as a total session newbie years ago.
i miss it.
