I approve  (:)


This is how it seemed to work, in the barn at playgroup


Dr Doom - Lester is there a Slow and Steady in Bristol?
Lester - I don't know let's google, Oh! here's one.
Passing stranger - I'm from Bristol as well, there are these things.


Lester drifts off to another conversation and by the next day a new slow and steady has been spawned  :||:   :|||:

Not slow, but there used to be a Tuesday session at the Golden Guinea in Brizzle and looking at their website it seems to still be going. Mixed instruments.

Bristol:  Golden Guinea English Session:     The organiser sent out an email many months (years?) ago stating that the Session was closing permanently.  It's possible it's re-started, but I doubt it(The pub website is dated 2016)   So  best check with the pub first. 

The English Sessions in Bath and  in  Bradford on Avon  are going strong however.  Details here:    https://concertina.info/wordpress/
