Thread Name: what is a session?
Subject: RE: what is a session?
What Dave H and others have said. The only thing I would add - and it's quite important - is that a pub session is for the benefit and pleasure of the performers. It's not necessarily for the benefit of the drinkers in the bar - though if they also like the music, that's a bonus!

I've had to make it clear to the various successive landlords of my local pub - just so that they know the score. We don't get paid, and we don't have to entertain the public. Not being paid in these circumstances is a distinct advantage...
