On every Wednesday we have a local Jam session at the London Bridge Pub in Monterey California, from 8pm until 10pm. This session was originally started by Glenn Toll and is mainly an Irish/Celtic Jam session.

We usually end up with about 5-8 players on any given Wednesday. A couple of fiddles, an autoharp or two, a few flutes/recorders, guitars, mandolins, and even the occassional bagpipe.

This Wednesday I didn’t play, but instead took notes. Here is the session playlist with a few mistakes and ommisions. I had to get a beer ya know. That and I wasn’t there for the full time. This is probably only about 1/2 to 2/3 of the songs played.
