John Wood 'Elite' jam sessions? Is it OK? (113* d) RE: 'Elite' jam sessions? Is it OK? 05 Jul 99

The jam sessions we have here in OSLO are pretty unique.
Not only are the musicians at various stages of learning,but they also come from a large number of different countries.
The ``record´´is 38 musicians from 10 different countries,all sitting round playing Irish(mainly)music!!
We've had Irish Bands drop in,that can't believe what they're hearing.
And the point is that EVERYONE is welcome.
If someone comes with a new song,people shut up and listen.Next time they sing it you'll get hamonies creeping in.All great fun....and nobody takes it too seriously!!
We are rather spoiled in many ways.There are several Irish pubs here that feature live music in the weekends.
We have our main jam session on a Saturday afternoon,so if we're lucky,we can have two,or even three Irish Bands join in.......and they do!!No matter how``famous´´they are.We've even had Dolores Keane pull out a flute and join in!!

Greetings John.
