Every 1st Friday of the Month from 8:00 - 9:00 there is a slow session. This is a traditional Irish session in all ways except one: the tempo. You will play common session tunes at a slower than normal pace, so that beginning and intermediate players can more easily learn the tunes and join in the session. Also great for experienced players who are picking up another instrument! A regular session sponsored by the Irish Center will run after that from 9:00 - on.
Every First Wednesday of the Month
7:30 - 9:30 PM Irish Center 6815 Emlen St. Philadelphia, PA
Singers Session, Every 1st Wednesday of the month. Session run by Terry Kane Join local Irish Singers both of English and Irish songs. All levels of singers welcome.
As always, you are welcome to bring songs that you sing on your own, in a small group, or that we sing with you. Lyric sheets are sometimes used but we all want to be developing our abilities to hear music and remember it. So if you have been singing from the sheets for a while we look forward to you singing some of those same songs from memory. It is not all about having something new every month. Please invite your friends it is free to listen and free to sing. All ages and skill levels welcome.
We will start on time but you are welcome to come in and out between songs as your schedule requires.
