Sessions at Johnnie’s

There is often a slow session held from 4-5 prior to the regular session, in the side room. The main session is held in the bar area, beginning at 5:00. In recent months the crowd at the bar has been pretty noisy (a common problem, I suppose).

This was a really fun session, great pub area — I haven’t been there in a year or two, more’s the pity.

This session is still going on. The learner session goes from 3:30-5:00, concurrent with a singer session in another room of the pub (which was just recently revived). The main session goes from 5:00 to 7:00 or 8:00 depending on who’s around.

Sad to say that this long-running session will be hunting for a new venue this September, as the Pub is closing mid-month after 21 years. When a new venue is announced, one of us will link to it from this entry.

Temporary location is Fairport’s First Baptist Church, 92 south main st, Fairport NY. Still looking for a more lasting home.

It’s back open, and the session is the last sunday of the month again! Last weekend was one of the best in a while, a good crowd and mix of musicians.

The Learners’ Session on Oct. 27, 2019, will only go from 3:00-4:00.

The Comhaltas chapter’s annual meeting of the membership will then interrupt everything at 4:00 (vote for officers!), to be followed by the regular session at 5:00 as an excuse to halt all official business and get back to the tunes.

The concurrent 3:00 singers’ session has been cancelled for this month, given the meeting thing.

The last-sunday of the month Johnny’s session will be BACK ON this month (September 2020). Capacity will be limited due to spacing, and there are several COVID-related logistics to consider. Message me if you’re interested!
