The focus is Irish traditional music (as well as Scottish, Welsh, Cape Breton, etc.), and traditional Irish songs are welcome (Sean Nós and accompanied).

Typical instruments at an Irish Traditional Music session include fiddle, flute, tin whistle, accordion, mandolin, mando-bass, Irish bouzouki, cittern, bodhrán, bones, tenor banjo, and guitar. Those listed above or any of the following are welcome instruments: uilleann pipes, Scottish small pipes, anglo concertina.

Note: For those unfamiliar with the Irish seisiún I strongly suggest taking a look at Barry Foy, Field Guide to the Irish Music Session (Fogchart, 2008). It is both humorous and informative, provideing basic seisiún etiquette for anyone interested in getting involved in the global ITM (Irish Traditional Music) community. Learn to do it here, and you can do it anywhere!
