No Session Weds 3 May 2017

Posted in Uncategorized on April 25, 2017 by bluelionsession

Unfortunately we won’t be around to host a session on Weds 3 May. However we do recommend you go to the Harrison pub in Kings Cross (on Harrison Street) instead for a very special bluegrass concert that night! Please do spread the word. Normal monthly sessions on the first Weds of each month will take place again from June, 8pm start.

Etiquette reminder

Posted in Uncategorized on March 5, 2015 by bluelionsession

Dear everyone, please take a little time to read our “Etiquette” section before coming along to the session. We try to be as welcoming as possible to everyone, but we’ve found on occasions there has been a bit of friction between players, which is not what we want and makes us a little uncomfortable. Please do be kind to each other, or we will ask someone scarier than us, to ask you to leave. Please also remember that just because you can play a tune really fast and loud, it doesn’t mean you have to. The best music to listen to is dynamic and has good tone. It pulses or swings and is neither brash nor overbearing. We think that making music together requires you to be able to listen and hear your fellow pickers. Complement, not compete. Thank you kindly.

Next Session – Weds 4th Dec – short session

Posted in Uncategorized on November 16, 2014 by bluelionsession

Hi All, our next session is due to be on Weds 4th December. Unfortunately there is an Arsenal match on that day so the pub will get super busy by 10pm, so we’ll probably finish the session early. We did think about moving it to another day but we couldn’t find one that Pat and I and the pub could all do. We’ll try and start promptly at 8pm though to make up for it!

Jams are now Monthly – the 1st Weds each month

Hi Guys,

We’ve decided to go back to a monthly jam, which means the next one will be the 6th August 2014.

Hope to see you there! Music starts at 8pm.


No Session Weds 16 April 2014

We will all be heading to Sorefingers Week at Kingham Hill School for some old-time and bluegrass tuition, so there’ll be no session on Weds 16th April. Normal service resumes on Weds 7 May at 8pm. See you there!

No Session on Weds 19th Feb 2014

Posted in Uncategorized on February 16, 2014 by bluelionsession

Sorry folks, we won’t be holding a session on Weds 19th Feb as there is a football match on down the road. 

For those looking for a dose of super special old-time American music don’t forget the Stuart Brothers from North Carolina will be playing at the Green Note, Parkway, Camden on Weds 26th Feb.

Also recommended are the award winning Bucking Mules, playing on 1 March at the Forge, Camden.

Next session is Weds 5th March.

See you then!

Xmas Greetings/Next Session/Stuart Bros in Feb

Posted in Uncategorized on December 21, 2013 by bluelionsession

Dear friends! Merry xmas from all at the “Blue Lion” Session which as you know is now hosted at the Lamb in Highbury. We are really happy with the way things have been going at the Lamb so we plan to continue there every 1st and 3rd Weds in 2014.

That said, the next session will be on Weds 15 Jan. (There will not be a session on 1 Jan due to an Arsenal match nearby!)

Also, we wanted to let you know that our friends the Stuart Brothers from North Carolina will be playing in London at the Green Note in Camden on Weds 26th February. Tickets have just gone on sale so snap one up quickly as it sold out last time.

Hope to see you in the New Year!

Helen, PJ and Chris
