Hawk Inn

Second Tuesday in the month from about 8-30pm. An ‘open’ session that normally features lots of acoustic Celtic Folk but all musicians and styles are welcome.

Re: Hawk Inn

I think my dad (Will) plays at this session. Good venue - high ceilings I seem to remember.I always bring my fiddle up when I come to visit sooooooo……!

Re: Hawk Inn & Fox Inn, Haslington

Unfortunately the Fox Inn has closed for the time being. The second monthly session has moved a few miles away to the Lamb at Willaston, Crewe. So here are the details for the rest of this year.
Second Tuesday of the month = The Hawk Inn, Haslington CW1 5RG
Wednesday of the following week = The Lamb Inn, Willaston, Crewe CW5 6PX
July 2017 - Hawk = 11th, Lamb = 19th
August 2017 - Hawk = 8th, Lamb = 16th
September 2017 - Hawk = 12th, Lamb = 20th
October 2017 - Hawk = 10th, Lamb = 18th
November 2017 - Hawk = 14th, Lamb = 22nd

Re: Hawk Inn

The Lamb now has it’s own entry on the database so take a look there for dates etc. Everyone is welcome at both sessions. Here are the Hawk dates for this year.
11th July 2017
8th August 2017
12th September 2017
10th October 2017
14th November 2017

Re: Hawk Inn

Due to another landlord change the Lamb session is now back at the Fox. The dates for our other monthly session are correct but it’s the Fox and not the Lamb (as of September 2017!). Richard.

Re: Hawk Inn

This session is doing well (December 2017) and the first dates for 2018 are listed below. It’s a ‘jump-in-when-you feel-like-it’ session rather than a strict ‘take-it-in-turns’ approach. We tend to play a lot of Irish and English folk tunes but European and American tunes keep popping up! We sing songs too. Nevertheless, all styles and instruments are welcome, beginners or more experienced players.

It gets going about 8-30pm and there is normally at least five or six regular musicians to keep things moving. Come and listen or join in as much or as little as you wish. As long as it’s acoustic - that’s fine.

Second Tuesday of the month.
9th January 2018
13th February 2018
13th March 2018
etc

We now also run a second session each month at the Rookery Tavern.

Re: Hawk Inn

To avoid clashing with other local sessions and fitting better with peoples other commitments, this session is moving to a Thursday. It continues to thrive and new participants are always welcome. So, second Thursday of the month (plus the Rookery Tavern on the following Wednesday - see the other listing). Thanks.
Thursday 10th May 2018
Thursday 14th June 2018
Thursday 12th July 2018
etc

Re: Hawk Inn

Our other local session has moved to the White Lion at Barthomley. See our other listing. This session at the Hawk continues well but we are aleays interested in new musicians/listeners/etc

Re: Hawk Inn

Our final session of 2018 is on Thursday 13th December. Would be nice to see some new faces! Cheers.

Re: Hawk Inn

Second Thursday of the month is working well but it would be nice to see new faces.

Re: Hawk Inn

Is this still going? I’d be interested to pop by. Not to play just yet - learning the mandolin but also recently learned my skill level is much lower than I thought, and that playing for other people really tangles up my fingers, but I can bring a song or ten. :o)

Re: Hawk Inn

Yes, it’s still going, very much so. Just seen your message - it’s tonight! (Thursday 12th September). If you don’t bring your mandolin, please make yourself known to us. Cheers, Richard.
