Traditional Irish Session (2021 program)

Michael Eskin
Music 1
Instruments & misc. / 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Real-time event on festival day with pre-registration required. You can find the registration link near the top of the program page when the link is ready.

This will be an open traditional Irish music session.

Anyone on the session may volunteer to start a set. Michael will mute everyone’s microphones except the person playing the set. The person plays their set, and everyone else can hear them and play along. Because only one mic is un-muted, you’ll hear only the person who started the set and yourself. When the set is done, Michael will un-mute all the microphones (for those who have allowed the meeting host to un-mute). At that point, anyone can pick a new set to play and Michael will do the same muting setup as before for the next set leader.

Since May 2020, Michael Eskin has been hosting “The Ould Sod Virtual Session” a popular free open traditional Irish session on Zoom every Thursday night from 5:30 – 7:30 PM Pacific.
