Session?

Hi,
Are there any Irish sessions this week? I’m an Irish musician from Washington DC and was just hopeful. 🙂 I’m in Seoul until June 29.

Still a session going on?

Hi I’ve just moved to Daejeon and I’m wondering if this session is still going on? Does anyone know of any other sessions in Korea?
