Cois na hAbhna Session

Regular Saturday night sessions take place in Cois na hAbhna, Ennis, commencing at 8.30pm.

Sessions are held in the newly built Teach Cheoil with its excellent bar facilities and first rate accoustic properties that are highly conducive to non-amplified music and song. All musicians and singers will be sure of a warm welcome and even dancers will find room for a figure or two of a set if they feel so inclined.

The main session which starts at 9.30pm will be preceded by a “slow session” aimed at improvers and musicians new to the Irish traditional session scene. The slow session starts at 8.30pm. A list of tune sets, taken from the Comhaltas Foinn Seisiún series, will be used for the slow session - books and CDs can be purchased at the session. The sets are shown below and will be replaced by new ones once musicians have learnt all the tunes listed.
