Bellingham Ceili Club Session!


An Irish music session is an informal gathering of musicians who play traditional Irish tunes together. It is not a performance or an open mike, but a group of players who share in a repertoire of this traditional music.

Bellingham Ceili Club is designed to provide two different types of sessions for two levels of players.

Slow Session

The slow session is for players who want to play tunes at a slow to moderate speed. At least 50% of the tunes played during the slow session will be from the list of common tunes posted on the BCC web site. If you are calling a set for the slow session, include one or more tunes from this list.

Regular Session

The regular sessions are faster paced and usually includes more complicated tunes. Many of the tunes played during this session will be listed on the BCC web site list of common tunes, but more new tunes are welcome.
