LVBIS – LOWER VALLEY BEGINNER IRISH SESSIONS – if you are a beginning Irish musician who wants to play at sessions but are not yet ready to play up to speed, The Lower Valley Beginner Irish Session is for you! We are a slow Irish music session in western Massachusetts with an emphasis on learning tunes by ear and playing slowly. We focus on the melody and welcome musicians who play traditional Irish melody instruments – fiddle, flute, concertina, mandolin, banjo, whistle, accordion, uilleann pipes are all welcome. “Cleachteadh a dhéannan máistreacht–Practice makes perfect.” We meet every other Wednesday (June 18, July 2, July 16, July 30, 2014, etc.) from 7 to 9 pm at DeCicé Hall at the Marian Center, 1365 Northampton Street, Holyoke, MA.
