Does "English" mean "only English" or "not Irish"? ;-)

Ken, in case I don't get my latest D/G conversion finished in time, would a 1 row in G suffice for some of the session choices of music? (I'm not used to playing in sessions, and don't really know what to expect.)

I have the odd spare D/G lying around that you can borrow and if you really like it, you can probably buy it! >:E

Thanks for the offer, Choonz,  but I expect that I'll be OK with the 1 row (for the number of tunes I'll be able to pick up, anyway, haha!)
Also, spending the week at Whitby precludes any melodeon purchases for the foreseeable future, I fear!

For a slightly different 'insight', you could re-cast the question in the context of a <mumble> session?

For example, does "Scandinavian" mean "only Scandinavian and nothing else"?...

Yes indeed Ken, the FILO English sessions were great, thank you!
Ian - nice to meet you and Hilda again. Great imaginative playing from you both (:). Sorry I never got to see the Smiffs dancing this time.
