Porthmadog, Criccieth & Beyond!
Music Sessions and Gigs in Gwynedd
You'll find sessions and other events listed on the 'Sessions' link on the menu
We have a core of beer loving musicians who have played sessions together for over 32 years with a number of regulars who join us from time to time. Visiting musicians are welcomed with open arms & no pressure. The music played comes from many genres - Irish to Contemporary to Welsh to Bluegrass, Cajun & Beyond, as long as it's playable live, it's good
Audience participation is welcome and attempted wherever as possible!
Aside from the vocals, instruments played regularly are ... Acoustic Guitars, Banjos, Accordion, Ukulele, Mandolin, Bass, Cajon
Over time we'll be adding past and new pictures to the gallery, You'll be able to see the various individuals from there, not to mention the Visitors. Oh - Did I mention " We love Beer"
We also run the "Lazy Days" Sessions held on the first Sunday of the month at The Ship, Porthmadog(all year) & 3rd Sunday at The Tydden Llwyn Ty Mwg Steakhouse), Morfa Bychan (during the summer months)
First thing to note is - This is a session & not a gig. Sessions are not amplified (Though to be honest we can be loud enough when we need to be) and are far more informal. The Travelling Session requires one thing at a venue to keep it going...Beer - yes, we play for beer! and guess what - We don't drive to sessions, so if you want us and it's not a bus ride away(or back) then you'll also have to fork out for the taxi/minbus!
We tend to play on Tuesday Nights but can make exceptions from time to time and with plenty of advance notice.
