You coming to my hometown, Breezy? When?
Lots of stuff goes on...Steve may have covered the things that interest you most. Rasputin's isn't to everyone's taste but you might like it, judging from your comments about the sessions you run. (No slur of Breezy or Dean aka Rasputin intended, that's just my observation). It is mostly very singer-songwriter oriented, unless the Finest Kind (Ian Robb et al) are there...
You won't find a real trad-sing situation like you're used to though, we just don't have the same repertoire (although I haven't checked out that new Song Circle).
There are several Celtic tune sessions:
- Rasputin's on Monday
- Daniel O'Connell's Pub on Wellington, Thursday
- Patty's Pub on Bank near Folklore Centre, Sunday aft.
British-style pubs are very very numerous in Ottawa and _might_ have music to your taste on any given night...
