Traditional Irish Music
The weekly slow session continues this Saturday afternoon, June 23th, at the New York Irish Center. We've been having a nice turnout lately (around 5-6 musicians), so let's keep it going!
We've started playing the "Galway Hornpipe" and "Anything for John Joe" so you're welcome to practice along. Again, this is a session geared towards beginners. So if you ever feel that the speed is too fast, just ask and folks won't mind slowing down to a speed you're comfortable with.On a related note, if you want to start playing at a faster pace, you should head over to Dempsey's (61 2nd Avenue) on Tuesday nights (8pm onwards). Great musicians, friendly atmosphere, big space and beer!

There is also the Ulle Mor CCE Sesun which is held on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 4pm to 7pm at the New York Irish Center. There are always nice things to eat, usually a few beers, and since it is smaller than Dempseys, more likely to afford everyone present a chance or two to start a tune.
