Sheffield Eurosession is open to all. Anyone who wants to play can lead a tune or join in at their own level and the musicians are always happy to take requests for dances. The session is run by a small group of volunteers. If you’d like to offer help or make suggestions, please do so! Sheffield Eurosession is aligned with both traditional and balfolk styles and we are willing to explore any kind of dance originating within Europe, without being too fussy about how to define this. Sessions so far have been influenced by Breton, French, Portuguese, Scandinavian, Klezmer, Basque and Bulgarian traditions.
Sessions are normally monthly, starting at 8pm if there’s a themed pre-session workshop, or 8:30pm if not, and the evenings continue to 11pm and beyond.
(Note that there is normally a pre-booked musician for the workshop).
We also hold extra occasional gigs with bands and teachers from other places. Here are the next few dates:
Thursday 14 November – Schottische Variations and Eurosession
Thursday 12 December – Polska Polishing and Eurosession
* * * January 4 January – Bal with 3 Pas D’Ici * * *
Thursday 16 January – Scandinavian with Hester and Rolf – in Walkley
