The Sultan

This is the normal every first and third Thursday of the month Trad English session BUT this week we welcome all Trad Irish players that want somewhere to play that isn’t completely over-run by inebriated screaming strangers in comedy Guinness hats. If you fancy sitting down and playing some tunes somewhere comfortable, appropriate and fun, the Sultan is the place. Thank you.

Re: The Sultan

Thank you to the influx of Trad Irish music players last Thursday.
We’ll try and do something similar very soon.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in playing/ learning English Country Dance Music/ Morris tunes/ Playford et cetera mixed up with a good seasoning of Trad Irish (and Scottish/ Swedish/ French/ Cornish and so forth!) sets, come on the first and third Thursday of the month. Great selection of beers, ales, ciders, stout et cetera and a large comfortable area for playing!
This is a London session reflecting the fab cultural diversity that we enjoy here.
Thank you!

Re: The Sultan

Hi,
I’ve been trying to follow the lilting melodies at tigh na wossit pub in Wandsworth on a Tuesday, but that gathering had passed on, and I’d be happier following Englisch tunes. (Don’t know how the German spelling crept in).
I’ll try to get over on the next Thursday, would that be this week, or next?
Thanks,
Stephen.
