Several members of the Pipers' Club have organized a weekly session. This is a traditional Irish session focused on dance music (reels, jigs, hornpipes, slides, etc.). The group is small, friendly and encouraging to beginners.
Tuesday evenings, starting sometime around 8:00 until 10:00pm. We often skip the fourth Tuesday of each month due to a conflicting event. Cancellations are usually announced on the group's mailing list.
The session is held at
Stephen's Green Irish Pub in Mountain View:
223 Castro St.
All traditional instruments are welcome! Beginners are welcome to sit in, and once you've learned a tune, we will do our best to play it as slowly as you like so you can join in. Advanced players may want to come enjoy the music at a more leisurely pace. And, anyone at all is welcome to come listen!
To build up a common repetoire and learn more tunes, we have at times in the past picked a tune for everyone to learn each week. Here is the list:
