I'm off to the St Ives are on Saturday for five days and was wondering, as a fiddle player, if anyone knows of any sessions going on........

We've just come back from there, similarly for five days.
There's a folk night at the Western Hotel in St Ives. Not really participatory. If you want to perform, you'd need to ask the MC. Standard of performance of those I saw range from quite good to interesting to bloody vile! If the seven kids from Newlyn turn up with their singer, they chatted throughout each performer - even their own singer (young female guitarist - sounded like Bjork on an off day). They soured what might have been otherwise enjoyable, but turned out to be a chore!

I haven't checked recently (wrong end of Cornwall for me!), but you might want to check out (ring 'em up, maybe) the Tinners Arms at Zennor, The Gurnard's Head and the Star Inn at St Just. Yes, I did once go to the Western Hotel one and found it to be somewhat lacking in talent and atmosphere!

The Pirates Inn, Penzance, every Tuesday night. Good session, mixed tunes from anywhere and songs.

Lots of links here: http://www.penzancefolk.co.uk/Links.htm (including mention of Pirate Inn session)

Also Mary and I are guests at Dreamers Folk on Sunday if you're still there then...
