Next Meetup

Celtic Music Session, Monday's at 'Provisions', Woodstock NY [Plyrs&Listnrs].
This is the new home for the long running session that for the past 14 years was held at New World Home Cooking in nearby Saugerties. However NWHC is closing and the session had to relocate. Regular members of the session are a tight knit group, with a well established set of favorite tunes. We expect the session to run every Monday night. Music is predominantly Irish, but depending on who is in attendance, the odd Contra, or Québécois tune can be heard, and even some Old Timey songs are possible. If you stay late enough in the evening the singers often predominate and it's the Dead, Beatles, traditional ballad songs or perhaps a few originals from one of the three singer songwriters who are frequently in attendance. Members of the session play in several different combinations at various other venues as the bands, "Spatter the Mud", "The Tradomatics", "The Wild Swans", and several other Trad and Contra bands. It's a very entertaining session for listeners, so we hope you'll join us at the new venue, and support the bar and us by ordering some beer. Session Etiquette applies. Ask Deb, who is the session leader if you can join before sitting in. Be sensitive to all the other players who have kept the session going long before you got there.... :-) No Charge....

We will also host Meetup's at other Musical and Arts performance events around the Hudson Valley. [Listeners]*

If you join us as [Listener] please be certain that any particular Meetup is suitable for [Listener] members to attend.

If you join us as an acoustic player of a traditional instrument, and you are interested in playing Traditional Irish Music as well as singing, you will find a friendly reception in this group.

The more you have to share with the rest of us, and the more willing you are to join in the act of passing on the traditions, the more valuable you are to our community.
