Second Sunday Session
Second Sundays is a music session held in Atchison,
KS on the second Sunday of each month with an emphasis
on playing music in the Irish/Scottish traditions.
While the not a traditional "slow sesssion," the emphasis is on
learning tunes and having fun 🙂 We have music and try to
play/learn most tunes out of the session book
that we have developed which we have copies of at the session. (The ABC file of the tunes is
available from John, see below).
However, we also play tunes without "the dots" when we can.
Singers and unusual instruments are also welcome.
