There are many accomplished banjo players in the Irish Music scene both at home in Ireland and here in the US, many that I am happy to call friends.
I take it by your comments that you yourself are an accomplished musician and critic of others ability to play, or not.
Open Sessions in pubs are not concert halls where you are paying $20,$30 or $50 a ticket to hear fabulous entertainers. These are for the average Joe to sit in and be a part of the music and the culture.
They should be welcomed and not discouraged by high brow "accomplished " musicians, who should probably be on the road going from venue to venue delighting the masses rather having to put up with the riff raff in a pub session.
