It would be great if people involved with the various sessions around NZ would use The Session to document their session and keep the information up to date but that’s not always the case. If in doubt, you can always ask on the Wellington Irish Sessions Facebook page for up to date information.

Sessions in Wellington

There’s a session in Wellington on Tuesday nights that starts about 7:30 pm in the Welsh Dragon Bar, 10a Cambridge Terrace, Wellington 6011, New Zealand. Players of traditional Irish music are welcome.

For the first hour or so the pace is relatively slow and suits those who are new to playing this sort of music as well as those want to play at a relaxed pace. If you’re new to playing at this part of our session, see our Introduction to Wellington Slow Session page.

There’s a number of people who come to the session who are part of a local university folk club, VicFolk. They meet on a regular basis to learn new tunes and you can see details of the tunes they’re currently working on at the Vicfolk at the Wellington Session page.

More experienced players tend to turn up after the first hour and the focus changes to a quicker pace.
