Saturday Session - Golden Lion, Camden, London UK

Brian ‘deadly’ banjo Kelly hosting - kickoff 9:30, till late-ish (12:30 1AM) - tunes tend to be played to be quite fast, but session is open & not at all precious - singers/poets and other oddities very welcome!

Provisional name for the knock-together house band is ‘The Golden Shower’ - tho dunno if that will make the ‘Time Out’ listings page,,,

All welcome - stop by for a pint/ tune - you know it makes sense!..


good to see you on here Gervais, who else is up at that one?

as oddities are always floating in the woodwork

I love the house-band name! And so appropriate…

Nice one Gerv!

Still Alive!

I had the pleasure of playing with these folks for a few weeks while I was in London on a research trip. The session is warm, welcoming, and really relaxed. Anyone is free to play a tune or sing, so the session has an eclectic feel, which can vary from night to night (and isn’t strictly Irish trad-only). While I attended, a number of singers sang their own songs as well – a real treat 🙂

Still a going concern?

I hope that this is still happening. I will be in London on 27 July, 2013, staying close by St Pancras Station,
and hope to drop in.

Any news?


Is this still up?

I’m in London for 2 weeks…and seems I’m not going to have a better time for going to sessions! 🙂 This one seems to be the most convenient from Paddington!

Re: The Golden Lion Pub

This session’s been on a Friday night, starting at 9pm, for some time. I’ve amended the details.
