A fortnightly gathering of musicians who play English traditional music. The session welcomes musicians who are familiar with English trad, or who are keen explore our repertoire. We encourage playing the tunes by ear and new session members can contact Jackie Luke at jackie.luke88@gmail.com to discuss joining the session, and to obtain the Canberra English Session book if required.

Please be respectful of the tradition. We are an acoustic session and in general do not encourage amplification. Fiddles, mandolins, squeezeboxes, wind instruments, dulcimers, and the like, all very welcome and brass instruments are also very appropriate. The session is led by Greg Wilson on accordions, and Jackie Luke on piano.
