Thread Name: Death of Diversity?
Subject: RE: Death of Diversity?
I think with any session, there is a tendancy to concentrate on tunes everyone knows and I think the number of tunes played can reduce as a result of that. I suspect I had that effect on one session I go to but, in the process revived some "old favourites".
I think it's easy to get set but the repertiore in that session seems to be changing agian - twice lately, I have sat for about an hour before knowing a tune to play - I'm not complaining - it's really up to me to make the effort to learn more tunes and I think in the long term, every one gains.
I've been to 3 different sessions in Norwich over the past couple of weeks and the sessions themselves are all very different in repertioire and even in feel.
