GUEST,Sam Pirt BS: Special Jug Night (138* d) RE: BS: Special Jug Night 30 Jul 01


Well I have been busy at festivals and stuff for the past three weeks or so and have been unable to get to 'The Jug' or mudcat for the matter, and I come back to find this!! I am suprised.

The Jug, as far as I am concerned, is a music session that takes place in a Pub (or Public House) which means it is an open session to which anyone may attend (mudcatter, non mudcatter or member of the public or non musician)

It has always been for me and still is your average music session in a pub, it is just many people who now attend it are mudcatters. The session came first.

I know that I would always want to promote my local session so new players can discover it and it can continue and develope, so mudcat would seem quite an appropriate place to discuss such a session.

The day that the jug becomes a 'select few' of musicians that looks down on any newcomers be they audience or musicians is the day I will stop coming to the Jug.

I want to meet new musicians, friends and learn new tunes and songs as that for me is what folkmusic is all about.

Cheers, Sam
