Irish Session

Our Celtic/Irish session, with jigs and reels etc, starts at 8PM on the second Tuesday and fourth Monday of each month (except in December due to Christams markets, etc).
All welcome.

Thursday Night Sessions/Open Mic

Every Thursday we host a session for local or visiting musicians to showcase their talent.

The first Thursday of the month sees Adi hosting our Singer/Songwriter showcase, featuring all original works from both new and old hands in the song writing arena.  Adi also host our newest offering: ‘Launch Pad’ on the Third Thursday each month, which provides a forum for more serious musicians to road test new acts.  To get involved please contact the pub or Adi in advance, as these are proving very popular and slots are limited.

Eli hosts an Open Session on each other Thursday welcoming friends or guests, to either take over the Open Mic or to join in the session atmosphere at the end.  If you want to come along and join in just come early and speak to Eli about a slot.
