January 2018 Slow Session Cancelled

Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful..

and I hear it's kind of terrible at home in the States too...

Dear Music Buddies,

I've been chatting with David and we've decided to cancel the Old Songs Traditional Irish Slow Session for tomorrow (Wednesday, January 17, 2018). It sounds like you'll be getting about 4-8 inches of snow or more.

We've got ice and snow and sleet and hail here in the West of Ireland at the moment, so we understand how you feel.

Anyway, here's wishing you all a very happy New Year from across the pond. I'll look forward to seeing you all in February.

Stay warm and safe and see you all soon!

Slán,

Hilary

CORRECTION: December Old Songs Slow Session Wednesday Dec. 20

Take the Snowy Path to Old Songs for some Shlow Chunes!


Happy Holidays everyone! I can't believe that I made this mistake - but our Slow Session is NEXT Wednesday, December 20th. (Thank you to Nancy for pointing it out!) If there's a need to cancel for any reason, check back here on Wednesday (12/20/17) at 6:00 p.m. That is when I will post a cancellation notice if any is needed.

Last month's session was very laid back and fun. We did not do a Learn by Ear tune and just launched into playing tunes.

Here's the list from last month:

Ships are Sailing (reel)
The Wind that Shakes the Barley (reel)
Jerry's Beaver Hat (jig)
John Ryan's Polka
Mickey Callahan's (hornpipe)
Spotted Dog (jig)
Christmas Eve ("Tommy Coen's") (reel)
Swallowtail Jig / Road to Lisdoonvarna (jigs)
Man of the House (reel)
When the Cock Crows it is Dawn (slide)
Maguire and Paterson (waltz)
My Darling Asleep (jig)
Moloney's Wife (jig)
Boys of Bluehill (hornpipe)

I'll see you all next week if the weather cooperates!

Cheers,

Hilary
