The longest-standing trad session in Alabama is on Sunday nights at Mc Sharry's Irish Pub 101 N. Bancroft Street in downtown Fairhope, Alabama. The music starts around 6:30 and goes till 9-ish. We generally have around 6-8 regulars, but many nights as many as 16 or more players come to enjoy the craic. We play fast and furious, but we're very friendly and welcome any intermediate level player who knows the tunes and wants to join in.

Have played at Vicki's session at Claddagh Cottage and it's a lovely one, altogether. Update on the Colorado/Denver sessions: Swallow Hill is discontinued indefinitely on the first Monday of the month. They have space issues with their classes expanding. The Archive Room in Arvada on Sunday is also discontinued.
