Slow Sessions

I run a slow session focusing on Scottish traditional music - if you play a folk instrument and would like to play some Scottish music once in a while, we're a friendly bunch. The session has been running a while now; our first one was away back in November 2015. You can join the mailing list here, or if you email me I can add you.

Location is the Beehive in Walworth, at the junction of Carter Street and Penrose Street. We have been evicted from the Beehive. Our next session - Mon 1st May - will be at the East Dulwich Tavern, at the foot of Lordship Lane. If all goes well, this will be a permanent home for us. I've created a session listing on The Session with some more info.

In particular, though I've put many of the tunes up here for reference, there is no need to know all or any of them before visiting!
