After the Flute Fling workshop on Saturday, there are a couple of open traditional music sessions taking place in the Portobello area that people are welcome to join.
Firstly, you might like to head along the seafront to The Dalraida Bar to catch the end of Sean Paul Newman’s afternoon session, which runs until 6pm. Then there is enough time to get something to eat before returning for a session at 9pm for a St Patrick’s Day session organised by local artist/ flute player/ whistler and singer Mike Kinnane.
As if that wasn’t enough, I will be playing with the band for Absolutely Legless, who will be performing spectacular Irish dancing on Sunday afternoon.
All of these events will be free.
