The King’s Head

Been going five months now. Fourth Wednesday of each month. Just lovely to finally have a place in our area with a proper Irish session! Several experienced players but learners also welcome. Good Adams beer.

Re: The King’s Head

Only just seen the question and yes it was on last night, Nov 23rd and a fine time we had.

Update (Nov 24th 2022): As we are enjoying this so much we’ve decided to make it twice as often, so from January 2022 it will be twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays. So the next ones are Jan 11th and Jan 25th, 2022. I’ll update here as soon as I can if anything changes.

As we are just establishing this, I’d like to -without getting all Captain Bligh - explain how we are doing it. It is set up by four of us who live local so that we can play Irish tunes, normal speed but all and any of the tunes we know (and we do know several hundred) . Other musicians are very welcome to come and join in and play their instruments if they know the tunes and I’m happy to tell people on here some of the ones we regularly play. It’s almost certain that during the evening we’ll say ‘Start one of your own, will ye’ but please don’t just wade in and start. It’s not that kind of session and we’d like to keep it that way. I’ve seen too many sessions go free for all and lose all their fun and I’m keen to make sure we keep all the enjoyment it currently gives. And we like to chat and would like this session to retain the social side and not just when of those ‘when can I squeeze in the peculiar one I’ve been dying to start?’ session-like-events where nobody actually talks to each other. So if Bligh hasn’t put you off, come on down. 🙂
