Please note that the junior seisiún at the Ireland's 32 is no longer going.
This page is left up for reference only.
The junior seisiún at Ireland's 32 is a great place for budding Iirsh
musicians of all ages to get a feel for playing tunes in a place that is forgiving,
low pressure and fun. Apart
from playing the tunes considerably slower than usual
(between ½ and ¾ speed), the junior
seisiún often works from a selected core group of tunes over time,
and often makes written scores of the tunes available to those who
want to use them. The intent is to assist beginning players to get
familiar with some standard tunes, to learn to play from memory, and
to learn to play in a seisiún environment, so
they can make the transition to regular seisiúns.
Our 'core' tune list may be found
here it features mp3 recordings and gif images of some of the tunes.
