Peninsula Session

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.

When?

Every Tuesday evening, starting sometime around 8:00 until 10:00pm. Cancellations are announced on the group's mailing list.

Where?

The session is held at Stephen's Green Irish Pub in Mountain View:

Stephen's Green
223 Castro St.
Mountain View

Who?

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!

What?

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:
