The Groton Session now at The Billiards Cafe in Ayer, MA every Wednesday at 7 pm.

We have a room down the hall from the main billiards room where the session has been going strong in this location for three years now. We typically attract 10 to 12 people, some arriving as late as 8:15. This is not a melody only session. You’ll hear occasional old-timey tunes and Québécois, but mostly the standard traditional Irish jigs and reels. The billiard hall has beer and you’ll find Smithwick’s and Guinness on tap as well as a half dozen others. The chairs supplied are not comfortable, so you may want to bring a portable one, or some cushions. A couple recent tunes include some slides: Going to the Well for Water, Merrily Kiss the Quaker, and Star Above the Garter, and a single reel, Jamie Allen. We’ve also been working up Trip to Durrow and The Otter’s Holt. Check the website for older set lists.
