erinmaidin Corruption of the meaning of Session (111* d) RE: Corruption of the meaning of Session 12 May 04


I have to admit that I scanned through most of the posts and probably didn't spend as much time as I should have , evaluating..measuring words...playing with semantics, etc. but I've only an average of 70 yrs. on this planet and who has time?!
I did get an impression that many believe that sessions in Ireland would not include singing. There is nothing more rewarding and exciting (to me) than someone from the village being coaxed into releasing an absolute jewel of a song into the session...it's tradition.
I will be the first to say I find "The Fields of Athenry" and "Wild Rover" etc. a bit redundant. If someone must sing, find one of those jewels,learn it well..accompanied or not...singing AS in playing, is something that should be practiced, polished and refined...otherwise it's just a noisy release of lung fuel.
