SMG Slow Session Class
Because of the crisis, all SMG classes are being conducted online for the Spring term. For details about how this works, see below.
The Slow Session class was started by me many years ago and has now existed for fifteen years. The main idea was to build up a repertoire and learn to play with other people. The classroom activities are just that: tunes are learned, sets are compiled and music is played. The point of action is when the class is finished and we adjourn to The Slow Session at Gatherer's Inn where we are joined by others and our music is (not) played in a (real) pub setting.
I seek out suitable tunes for the class course, and each year a possible list of new tunes is proposed and worked through. Inevitably, some of these tune "stick" while others don't.
