Session @ New Sydney Hotel, Hobart, Tas

Mixed tune and song session. Starts around 4:30pm. Music varies from Trad Irish to American songs with a bit o’ bluegrass chucked in for good measure. The pub is now a non smoking venue!

New Sydney Hotel, Hobart, Tasmania

Hi there!

Briantheflute speaking here!

If you want a session, (and more importantly get a seat!) get there for 3.00pm sharp!

It’s a great little session, and irrespective of ability or repertoire every player/singer gets a free drink.

If you need more information please feel free to to contact me through this site.

Happy playing, maybe I’ll share a tune with you one day!

New Sydney Hotel Hobart

Just to update things.

WATCH THIS SPACE!

A lot of work is going on with me, Billy Moore and Micky Lynch getting together to run classes for beginners and those who want to attain a "stock core" of "standard" session tunes.

There have been many discussions on this site regarding this subject, as there have been on the subject of etiquette, which will also be addressed.

I ran a series of classes to this effect a few years back and it really went well. Unfortunately logistics of location and employment prevented the ongoing success of these classes.

We hope to start again soon with the aim of conductiong the classes about 2pm Saturdays so that the natural progression is to the normal session about 3pm.

At present tunes are being pepared and it is envisaged to start these classes within a month.

I’ll keep you all posted. Happy playing!

All the best

A warm welcome

Thanks Brian.The welcome was so warm. Sitting between Dot and Jim was great. They chatted introduced people as did you. I will rave to my session mates about Hobart for weeks. Thanks Lionel from Melbourne.

Re: The New Sydney Hotel

Session still going strong as of July 2016. Thanks to "briantheflute" and the rest of the regular musicians for a friendly welcome and good few tunes. Photo of Brian and myself, with Ross on guitar, on the home page at the moment. Hope to get back again sometime.
PS - now starts mid afternoon, around 3.00pm.

Re: The New Sydney Hotel

Greetings all!

Just to let you know that the tunes start flowing about 2.30pm these days and seats are taken rapidly. Alistair, our host, (it’s his pub) AND his staff love this session and really get into the mood. You can sign language to the bar and they’ll do your drinks and fetch them out to you.

It always goes on until 6pm, and quite often past that. I, along with my friends, have had the privilege of meeting many musicians travelling through and we really do try to make everyone welcome.

When "kenny" visits is always special for me as we have played music together from way back, and others from Ireland, England and Scotland have dropped in and it makes for special reunions.

I don’t have any fancy phones or IT connections or whatever but you can always PM me at

briantheflute@gmail.com

if you need any details or information.

Also you can contact the pub on (03) 62 34 45 16

All the best

Re: The New Sydney Hotel

NOT a good place recently!
There’s a great decline in the proceedings there and one’s welfare within is not necessarily of concern
