I was close to putting this one on myself, but thought the long-timers should do it. Thanks! CCE-Pittsburgh have moved it to this location just in Sept. of 2004 and it is fun if still small, so come on by.

Session suspended

This session was suspended in February of 2008. I don’t know the whole story. As I write this we have one other session in Pittsburgh, and I will support anyone else who starts one. Play on!

The Irish Center of Pittsburgh

The Irish Center of Pittsburgh, in association with CCE, will sponsor a session on Friday, Jan 20, 2017.
Starting at 7PM, the first hour will be a learners session.
From 8PM - 10PM (or whenever), will be a regular tune session.
Drinks and snacks will be provided.
This will be the first of what we hope will become a regular Friday session at the Irish Center of Pittsburgh.

I am an intermediate hammer dulcimer player in Pgh. Would love to play with others but can’t make the 20th starter session. How do I sign up for further notices of sessions?

Re: Irish Center Of Pittsburgh

Re: Irish Center Of Pittsburgh

This session has been on an irregular schedule (every few months) since late 2018. Your best bet for info is to check all of the irish center website (link above), the pittsburgh cce page on facebook (try a search there), and here for notice of gatherings. I don’t have any inside info, so writing me won’t answer your questions. I’ll continue to encourage those involved, when I encounter them, to consider instituting and publicizing a regular schedule.

Re: Irish Center Of Pittsburgh

There will be a CCE session at the ICOP this Friday, 5/10/19 starting at 7PM.

Re: Irish Center Of Pittsburgh

Visiting Pittsburgh this weekend and wondering if there are still any sessions happening these days. I think the last time I was there the Bee Hive session was still going on!

Re: Irish Center Of Pittsburgh

That was a few years ago…for regular sessions that predictably take place it is pretty thin. The Harp and Fiddle (which see) session seems to be going once a month (currently first Thursday), though I haven’t been since they changed the schedule.
