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.
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 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 all students in Ireland learn without written music.
The Intermediate Session meet every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 3:00pm until 5:00pm. We are currently playing at Malarkey’s Tavern located at 4460 Trinity Mills Rd. in Dallas, TX 75287.
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.
The Advanced Sessions meets on the 1st, and 3rd and 5th Sundays from 3:00pm until 5:00pm. We are currently playing at Malarkey’s Tavern located at 4460 Trinity Mills Rd. in Dallas, TX 75287.
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.
