The Slow Session continues this Saturday afternoon at NYIC. Drop by to share some tunes and songs over coffee/tea - all instruments and skill levels welcome!
There's also the monthly CCE session coming up this Sunday with a master flute and whistle player (Peter Maguire). Always a fun afternoon with good music and good pastries!
Again, the slow session is geared towards learning musicians. If you find a tune to be a bit fast, we can always play it again at a slower pace. Some of us play with sheet music, but you're encouraged to (try) pick it up by ear as well. There are not many rules, so feel free to play at a slower pace or choose an unknown tune/song. Just make sure you know the entire tune (so others can learn from you).
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!
