Irish Session Ensemble

$222 ($212 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Do you play, sing, or dance to traditional Irish music by yourself? Do you want to gain the confidence to join in with others at sessions? If so, this class is for you.

In this welcoming, guided session, we will take the tunes, songs, rhythms, and steps you have learned in your instrument-specific lessons and classes and make music together in a supportive and joyful environment. You will hear new tunes and songs to add to your expanding repertoire. We will also introduce you to session etiquette and share how to best comport oneself at a session here and in Ireland. You can expect stories, jokes, and lots of great music. Come join us!


Basic to intermediate skill level on your instrument.

Instruments: Accordion, Bodhran, Fiddle, Flute, Guitar, Piano, Tin Whistle, Voice, Banjo - Tenor, Concertina, Harp
