English Music Session, The Borough

Our English music session takes place at lunchtime (12.00 noon carrying on to 3 or 3:30pm) on the first Sunday of each month. All musicians are welcome; in common with other English music sessions, tunes from all over the world are played, but in our (loose) interpretation of the southern English country style. It's not that we've got anything against singing, or Irish, French, Cajun music or whatever, but that's not what this session is about. If you are not sure about the repertoire come along and listen. If you want a book or CD to give you an idea of the sort of music we play a good start is the Hardcore English book and/or CD published by the EFDSS. The annual English Country Music Weekends form another point of reference.

Forthcoming dates are:

Sunday 8th January 2017

This old-established (it started in 1981) session has had its home in a number of pubs in the Borough area of London; notably, and originally, in the Goose & Firkin.

We now meet at:

The Horseshoe Inn
26 Melior Street

The Horseshoe is an unspoiled, traditional, pub serving a number of real ales which was featured in the October-November 2008 (Volume 30 No.5) issue of London drinker. A full range of food is available.

Melior Street is a side-street off Weston Street, which runs between St Thomas Street and Long Lane. Here is a map showing the pub's location from the UK Streetmap site. The nearest station is London Bridge -- National Rail, and underground (Northern line (Bank branch) and Jubilee line). You can exit from underground station into St Thomas Street, via Joiner Street, or from the mainline station directly into St Thomas Street, and the Horseshoe is then two or three minutes walk away. Contact Transport for London for details of the many bus routes that serve the area.
