Hi! The session in Llewellyn's Bar Llanrwst is no longer active. Can the details be removed please? People keep calling me under the impression that my number is the number for the bar when in fact Iwas merely the organiser of the session.

Many thanks

The Social, Sundays 5 pm start, Stenosgade 1, Copenhagen V., Denmark ,  Facebook

Comment by Daniel Winfree Papuga on January 27, 2014 at 6:29

In Trondheim, Norway,  sessions for both the Antikvariatet and Den Gode Nabo are announced on the facebook page 'Irish Session Trondheim'. Best to follow along there, as the pubs themselves won't know much about the sessions.

Comment by Ciaran Bruen on January 26, 2014 at 21:03

Comment by Erin Brown on December 30, 2013 at 12:55

Please can you add these two sessions to your list. Many Thanks

East of England

Crown and Castle, Risby, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

This is now a regular session at the Crown and Castle, Risby on the last Wednesday of the Month 8:30pm started in September 2013. Mainly Traditional Irish and English tunes with the occasional song.

The Fleece Hotel, 8-10 Broad Street, Boxford, Suffolk

First Wednesday and Third Friday of the month.

It’s an informal session with all instruments and musical genres welcome. Singers and dancers also welcome. Note this is not a round the room style session as we love impromptu collaborations and all try to play along with each other. It’s a great session in lovely surroundings with great beer, great music and great people.

Also at the Fleece-
FleeceFolk have been putting together high quality gigs performed by some of the best folk acts from the U.K and beyond. The venue is our very own ‘Guild Room’. With its arched ceiling, tapestries, pewter mugs, and general medieval feel it is a superb and unique setting for the best of folk. The acoustics are excellent, as is the beer, the atmosphere, and the music! This has to be one of the most unique venues in Suffolk.
