Shaneo Are the sessions real in Ireland? (230* d) RE: Folklore: Are the sessions real in Ireland? 11 Jan 07

We played a few sessions in Clare last September and most went well except for Ennis , our Whistle player got his leg broken in a bar in Ennis during a session.
The best reception was in Sixmilebridge , we played three of the five pubs in the town [mighty craic]
What surprised us about Co. Clare was that when they heard our Dublin accents they didn't associate us with the playing of traditional music,,strange that,,
Maybe it goes back to when Dubliners went on holidays down the country all they did was drink and fight.
As a band we pick a county and head off for a long weekend a few times a year to see whats happening and it's great to see that musicians are still welcome to start a session in most parts of Ireland.
