PLEASE NOTE: I've put myself down as event host yet can't always attend this long-established TRAD SESSION, held atTHE CANTERBURY TALES PUB every THURSDAY from around 8:30pm. Especially on the 1ST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH when the SONGWRITERS' SHOWCASE- another EKMG I'm the event host for - is on. I 'm afraid I can't be in two places at once, although I'd love to be!
Yet we oft pop around the corner to the session after an hour or so at the Showcase. So either wait for us at the 'Tales or come join us at the Songwriters' Showcase where Emily, organizer of the Songwriters' Showcase, can point me out to you. And please do use the RSVPs and the comments here if you fancy going and want to see if anyone else fancies going along with you. Don't let whether or not other EKMG members will be there stop you, as it's often a very good night of music in a really friendly pub.
It 's mainly an Irish trad session but, depending on which musicians turn up to join in, there can be other styles thrown into the musical 'stew'. Plus now and then well-known musicians from Ireland and elsewhere such as Johnny Doran, Noel McCalla, Mike Harding to name a few have popped in.
***From time to time it can occur that the musicians are busy playing elsewhere, so you could get there and find no musicians turn up. But it's a nice pub (in winter there's a roaring fire to warm your cockles), with a jukebox , so stick a few tunes on and perhaps enjoy a pint of something and chat to the really friendly bar staff.***
