Smith’s Alternative

This is a weekly Irish trad session at Smith’s Alternative in Canberra City (Civic).
Tunes run from 5pm until 7pm.
Skill level varies from beginner friendly through to hell-for-leather break neck speeds depending on the turn out. All welcome.

More than 20 people attended this one on my first visit. It has been going for a few months, I’ve been told. Despite being a "book store", it has a liquor licence … and not too many books.

Re: Smith’s Alternative

Hi, I live in Victoria but go to Canberra a few times a year, and am quite acquainted with Civic in the daytime, where I sometimes have a couple of happy Guinness at King O’Malley’s somewhere around lunchtime. But where is ‘Smith’s Alternative’ exactly ?(sound familiar but I can’t place it) …. Just in case I want to drop with my fiddle… though 2 hours is hardly enough time to get pumping surely? Message me personally if you like. Cheers, Gobby.

Alinga Street at western side of Northbourne Ave. Right there at the tram stop. It’s a big, low key session - a wide range of players.
