The first Sunday of the month we now have a  loosely Celtic Jam Session at the Ol’ Factory Cafe in Sand City. Starts at 3 and lasts until 6pm or so.

On Sunday May 3rd, 2009 there were 4 Fiddlers, a Bassist, 3 Guitarists, a Mandolin player, and a Penny Whistler joining in.

I arrived a few minutes late and left a bit early, but here is a session list from while I was there. It’s not complete, I ended up chatting off to the side at one point. But here is a listing of a good portion of the tunes.

MP3’s of the tunes can be found in this directory.

They aren’t the best mp3’s. I basically took the abc’s and turned them into midi files with abc2midi and then converted those to mp3’s so I could play them on my ipod.  But, they are better than nothing. (-;
