To have your questions answered, email Alan Davis. To get added to the email list for the monthly announcement of next month's Slow Celtic Session (includes directions on how to find the Center), email John Goldsbury. (It's the same email that will announce both next month's Slow Celtic Session and next month's regular Celtic Session.)
These are informal gatherings of local and guest players focusing on Celtic tunes played in the session style. The goal of the Slow Celtic Session is to allow folks to ease into the Celtic tunes at a gentler pace. While the entire CFS Regular Celtic Session tune list is fair game, there are some suggested tune sets listed below that might help you get started.
"Should I attend?" Yep, if . . .
