Re: The Forresters Arms

Hi,
What is the format?
instrument mix, numbers and the like?

Re: The Forresters Arms

Hi, it really depends on who shows up! usually there are a couple of locally based fiddle players plus whoever makes it up from the York sessions, so can be a few boxes, whistle, mandolin or banjo, sometimes double bass even. Can be anywhere from about 5 to 15 musicians.
Music is a mix of everything, or at least it was the last time I went in back the summer.

I was hoping to go to this when I’ll be in the area in a couple of weeks time, but the pub website says that it’s closed because of a serious fire :-(
