Colie’s Café, George Hall, Nazareth College
6-9PM. Directions to Colie’s Café are on this PDF: http://irishrochester.weebly.com/uploads/2/5/8/5/25859742/irish_music_monday_session_at_colies.pdf
Slow session, reading sheet music. Set lists here: https://sites.google.com/site/rocnyslowsession/ First hour (6-7) is waltzes and airs.
No food or beverage is served (the "café" name is a bit misleading), though you can bring your own food or non-alcoholic beverages.
This is the slow session that was formerly at McGraw’s Pub in East Rochester and later T.R. Noonan’s in Egypt.
Re: Colie’s Café, Nazareth College
This now goes from 7-9 PM — the 6-7 waltz hour was trimmed off, and the 7-7:30 slot was designated for waltzes and slow pieces. Many waltzes go through the rest of the night as well, as it’s run in a round-robin fashion where people each select a tune as the lead goes around the room. Quite a big (and friendly!) group.
There are often performance sets prepared for special occasions: particularly in the month before certain holidays, there can be a lot of holiday-themed songs.
