Sessions

Good traditional music sessions around Northumberland

This isn’t a definitive list, but if you can sing a song, or play a few trad tunes, you’ll be more than welcome at any of these venues. I’ve not visted each and every session listed but I’ve heard good reports from musicians who have.

This is nowhere near a full list of all the sessions currently active in Northumberland – I’ve stuck to the ones that seem to be the most popular or well known. Most of the music played will be Northumbrian, but quite a few English and Scottish tunes, even a few Irish, have been absorbed into the Northumbrian repertoire. Irish trad music isn’t that well represented in Northumberland though there are a few enthusiasts (including me!).
