English Music Session, The Borough


Our English music session takes place in the afternoon (2:30pm carrying on to 5 or 5:30pm) 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:

IMPORTANT: Following the latest government advice on Covid-19 and the closure of all pubs, the session is suspended until further notice.

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 Royal Oak
44 Tabard Street
London
SE1 4JU

The Royal Oak is a traditional back-strtreet pub, serving the full range of beers from Harvey's Brewery. Food is available, including Sunday roasts.

The pub is a few minutes' walk from Borough tube station (Northern line) and ten minutes walk from London Bridge (Jubilee line and National Rail). Contact Transport for London for details of the many bus routes that serve the area.
