What’s a Seisiún?

Harrington's window with open signAn Irish traditional session (seisiún, in Gaelic) is a gathering of musicians to play together. At the session you may hear tunes such as jigs, reels, hornpipes, airs, and such from Ireland on instruments like the fiddle, accordion, recorder, tin whistle, or even a guitar. You often hear songs, solo or sung with accompaniment, and even the occasional verse or poem recited. From time to time there may be a bit of Irish dancing, too.
