PUB MUSIC SESSIONS are mostly informal gatherings at which people play traditional music. The general session scheme is that someone starts a tune, and those who know it join in.
Good session etiquette requires not playing if one does not know the tune, and waiting until a tune one knows comes along. Everyone who is able to play is welcome. Commonly there are recognized session leaders; sometimes there are no leaders. At times a song will be sung or a slow air played by a single musician between sets.
The objective in a session is not to provide music for an audience of passive listeners; although the punters (non-playing attendees) often come for the express purpose of listening, the music is most of all for the musicians themselves. Sessions are a key aspect of traditional music; some say it is the main sphere in which the music is formulated and innovated. and also enable less advanced musicians to practice in a group.
Socially, sessions might be compared to an evening of playing card games, where the conversation and fellowship are an essential component.
