Traditional Irish Music Session

The Gables
Doors 9:30 pm - Admission: FREE



The Gables has had a rich history of traditional Irish music sessions in the



city of Cork for almost four decades.The Gables has been the recipient of



many awards including Oireachtas na Gaelige music award for pub session.



The walls are lined with framed posters from past Cork Folk Festivals, the



history of the music of a city, with some



featured names of those appearing having played the Gables on many



occasions. The session has been visited by travelling musicians from far



and wide with many diverse cultures. They have been tutored in all forms of music, classical, jazz, folk and blues but in some way all are drawn to the



allure of traditional Irish music. They are drawn to the allure of the session.



The way in which a group of musicians can gather, some having met only for



the first time, pick a set of random tunes and yet all know exactly when to



start, change and stop, all in perfect unison. Yes the phenomena of the



musical gathering that it ‘the session’.
