Irish Music Sessions

Traditional Irish Music Sessions

A traditional Irish music session is a gathering of musicians who get together on a regular basis to play commonly known traditional Irish tunes, share tunes and often sing songs. The traditional Irish music sessions have a long history in Irish culture and are the heartbeat of traditional Irish music. In Oulu, we have an active Irish music session scene made up of around 20 musicians who gather frequently to play tunes, share tunes and enjoy each other’s company. They serve as social meeting point for musicians and fans alike and we welcome everyone inclusively.

All musicians are welcome to attend.

If you are a beginner or want to learn, become involved or just want more information, please let us know by emailing .
