I seem to remember this session being held on a Sunday night as well. We transplanted the session to the John Hewitt from the Liverpool Bar after it was knocked down. True to the original, it runs on a Wednesday and a Sunday, as well as Saturday early evening and Tuesday nights. Good mix of music on different nights and lots of characters at the Saturday session particularly.

John Hewitt Bar

The Saturday Session starts around 18:00 hrs and lasts until 21:30 or 22:00 hrs. Personnel can change from week to week but most weeks there’s a mixture of, Spike Callaghan, Milo Crossan, Michael Clarkson, Gerry McCartney, Paul Bell, Sam Murray, Brendan Mulholland, Tom Clarke, Trevor Stewart and occasionally Maurice Bradley and many others. Very friendly session but not really suitable for beginners.

According to the website there’s now only an early evening session on Saturdays, starting 5.30pm.
