Is this an open session?

Does anyone know if this is an open session? About how many musicians usually play?

reply to Peter G

I’d say it’s less of an open session than some, but not completely a gig. Maybe about six musicians? There’s not a big space for more.

Re: St. Stephen’s Green

thought of as a gig by the couple who run it…who clearly do not like to have tunes played that they do not know. That said, it has expanded to full capacity on the limited “stage” space. There is talent present but the craic is seriously lacking.

Re: St. Stephen’s Green

We always welcome other musicians and have no issue with “tunes we don’t know”….our space is limited however, and we play more for the patrons than ourselves. It is miked but acoustic players join in. There is mighty craic.., notwithstanding the detracting bodhranista. ..It’s a wonder that a bodhran player played any tune we didn’t know 🙂

Hey is the session still every Tuesday?

St Stephens Green Publick House

The third Wednesday of every month, we think this is New Jersey’s first singing seisiun. All levels of singer welcome.

Please note, this is not an instrumental seisiun.

Re: St Stephens Green Publick House

This event is hosted by the band Kerry O’Keigh but it is open to all singers. We try to focus on Irish and maritime singalongs but it’s all about the songs.

We have some copies of songbooks to help get things started.
