Welcome to Dallas Slow Sessions. We are a small group of musicians in the D/FW metroplex with a passion for playing Celtic music at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. We provide a fun, learning environment for you to play traditional Irish music.

Beginner Sessions

We are currently meeting in Jim’s apartment living room on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. We currently have about 5 to 6 people attending. The first part of our session is used to play the Basic 10 tunes (you can download these tunes from the Music page of this site), and the second part we play whatever tune that 2 or more people know. We sometimes include at least one tune to learn by ear as traditionally most students in Ireland learn without written music.

Intermediate Sessions

The Intermediate Sessions meet every 2nd weekend of each month.

This is an intermediate level session and all people who play traditional Irish music at an intermediate level (about 80-100 bpm), on acoustic instruments that are traditionally considered Irish music instruments (flute, penny whistle, fiddle, etc.) are welcome to join us.

Advanced Sessions

The Advanced Sessions meet on the 1st weekend of each month.

Our purpose is to share our fun music with a public that enjoys Traditional Irish music.Participation in this group is by invitation only. Participants are required to play the 18 Advanced Tune Set and all other music by memory and to play all tunes up to speed.
