Weds at the Red Lion

Good beer, nice venue but poor acoustics. Diverse musical styles here - blues, bluegrass, jazz, hardcore folk singing, traditional Irish, Welsh, English, Scottish. Pot luck really, but all of these get at least one outing in the average evening.

***venue Change***

This session has moved across the road to The Elephant.


This session is now deceased.


This session has been revived but is now on the 1st Wednesday of the month only.

Weekly Sunday Session

There is now a weekly Sunday session at The Red Lion. Unlike the monthly Wednesday session (which is predominantly singer-guitarists, with mostly non-traditional repertoire), the Sunday session is biased towards traditional tunes, having replaced the Sunday session at The Crown and Anchor.

Repertoire can be a mix of Irish, Welsh, English, Scottish, Scandinavian, French, American, Canadian, Bulgarian, Klezmer… No bar on other styles (tunes or songs).
