Bernard, Trevor and Mel are the hosts of the traditional session
The Ship session has now finished
Unfortunately, due to Bernard O’Reilly (session leader) being taken ill in the autumn of 2004 this session sadly finished in March 2005.
Also, Trevor the other senior fiddler player has been unwell and unable to attend anymore.
These elderly gentlemen were an inspiration to us all and I wish them all the best in getting back to good health.
The Ship Inn session has recently started up again - 9pm every saturday.
Being a saturday and newly restarted, attendance is a bit hit and miss, so if travelling, make enquiries first.
For now, If you email me, I’ll forward it. I’ll see if I can get an official contact number next session.
ps Recent sessions have been mixed irish, english, northumbrian - depends who turns up!
Ship Inn Styall - date change
From Jan 2008 Session will be 1st and 3rd saturdays each month, rather than every saturday. Pretty good attendence these days, still mixed irish, english, french etc.
Ship Inn Styall
What had grown into a pretty good session has just been cancelled by the landlady - apparently we weren’t pulling in the punters. It sounds like she wants “Some good joiny-in songs”. “Whisky in the Jar” anyone
