DESCRIPTION:

Whether you're simply listening, or you'd like to try playing along, this insightful look into how it all works will put you on the road toward a deeper understanding and appreciation of the music, while providing a lot of laughs along the way.. There's more to it than meets the eye or ear, and a sense of how to conduct a session--and conduct yourself at one--is not something you're born with, your Irish surname notwithstanding. As the first and only book devoted entirely to the dynamics and etiquette of the traditional Irish musical gathering, Field Guide to the Irish Music Session dares to delve into it all. The seemingly offhanded, impromptu grace of a good Irish session is no accident

I liked it. Elaine Bridges This is a very small book but with some good info in it. I play tin whistle and play mostly Christian music but if I wanted to go to a session I would at least have a heads up after reading this book. Actually, I wish everyone I played any kind of music with would read this book and think about the issue of "group music etiquette". Even though not everything would apply, having a lead "alpha" instrument is important. kbwong said Great stuff!. The only people I know who don't like this book are people who don't do well at Irish sessions for the very reasons Mr. Foy gives. Funny thing, that. If you want to fit in and aren't Irish (ie: didn't grow up in Ireland, and are therefore completely experienced in the intricacies of Irish society), get this book, read it, and believe it. If you don't end up using the stuff in here, great. You're gold. If you DO need. Read It and Weep -- and laugh a lot, too kbwong The only people I know who don't like this book are people who don't do well at Irish sessions for the very reasons Mr. Foy gives. Funny thing, that.
