Oregon Sessions List update: O'Neill's has gone out of business. Bottles has gone out of business. Kells and Tigardville sessions are still active, Caldera is still active but may close down soonish. Maher's session is still active but the pub has been renamed to The Dullahan, same location in Lake Oswego, Oregon. That's it.

We now play Sundays at License No. 1, in the Basement of Hotel Boulderado, 13th St. Boulder at  7  pm until 11 and sometimes later. Having some fine sessions there, appreciative listeners, great craic!

The listing under TEXAS for Lotus Dreams Tea is now invalid. None of the data listed there is currently accurate and that listing needs to be removed.
