On Sunday afternoons, the Hostel Café in Portland, Oregon provides a friendly setting for this TrailJams Irish traditional tune session. TrailJams is a music community focused on making acoustic music together outside for the enjoyment of the musicians and of people passing by. The cozy café makes a great place to keep the music going in the winter. In better weather, the tune playing moves out to the café’s courtyard. Guests of the Hostel Café and the adjoining Northwest Portland Hostel are likely to settle at one of the nearby tables to enjoy the music.

COVID Policy:
Please be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 if you are joining this session — that is a request, not a requirement.

Back by popular demand, we now announce the next annual MUSIC ‘TIS BETTER THAN FOOTBALL AND TO DO ‘TIS BETTER THAN TO WATCH, SO WE‘RE GONNA‘ DO MUSIC PARTY. This totally amicable event will be held right here, 2626 Orchard Hill Place, Lake Oswego, OR 97035, on Sunday, February 11, 2024 starting at 2:30 pm or thereabouts. We shall enjoy one another‘s arts, talents, and self-expression, and thereby resolutely abstain from witnessing the media‘s annual breathless bacchanalia of bad bets, battered brains and broken bones. All forms of artistic self-expression (e.g. recitation, short stories, dance, jokes, etc) not longer than a typical song will be welcome from those who have something that they want to share with a friendly audience, as long as you are not louder than a bagpipe. All are welcome at any level of performance skill from near-beginner through all varieties of unknown up to whatever you‘ve got or more. We shall take turns and make sure that all get a turn. If you attend, please be ready to perform or at least come with someone who is. Arrive any time after 2:30 pm. This is an hour before game time, so that you will have a chance to not get sucked in by the pre-game shows. I have no idea how many will attend, but if we get enough to keep going, we will do so about as long as is usual for such things. The food situation will be similar to that of last year -- some eats and drinks will be provided by us, and all attending are encouraged to bring whatever they wish to share and anything they do not care to do without. Please reply by email if any questions: achrist*(at)*easystreet.net. Call us at 503-245-4070 (Al) or 503-752-3875 (Helen) if you lose your way getting here. Thanks for your consideration, Al Christians and Helen Christians

Tony Becker of San Jose, California and Mark Wallis of Gloucester, England host this Transatlantic session for all interested parties on Wednesdays at 8:00 PM UK time. For American visitors, please note we are now all on standard ‘winter‘ time, so that is 12:00 PM Pacific in the USA.

Open to all who play traditional Irish music and It has the obvious limitations of Zoom in that only one musician can play at a time. But we go round the ‘room’ and take it in turns - no pressure though and the baton can be passed if you just want to listen. We just play for a couple of hours.

On a good day we have a variety of instruments from pipes to Melodeon, banjo to fiddle and it can be a good way to pick up tunes. It is very friendly and we welcome everyone. The only criterion is we try to stick to Irish traditional.

Artichoke Community Music class led by Ken Gaines, $60 for two sessions/$30 drop-in.

Please note that these sessions will NOT occur on consecutive weeks. This class will meet on 9/13 & 9/27.

After a while we all tend to write the same type of song and while they may be successful, they become our "beautiful rut." This seminar/workshop takes the participants back to the basic music elements of songwriting and teaches a structured approach, bringing variety into newer songs - an approach that will last a lifetime of writing.

Each session is 2.5 to 3 hrs long. Attendees must bring their instruments, paper, and something to write with.

Everybody loves seeing a jug band, but there’s often more to this fun music than meets the eye. In this class we’ll dig into original jug band recordings from the 1920s-30s, learn about the artists who created them and practice building arrangements that reflect their unique style.

Players of all skill levels will have a role in our arrangements. If you already play a standard instrument like guitar, mandolin or harmonica, or a homemade instrument like jug, washboard or washtub bass, please bring it. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn a homemade instrument if you like. Depending on how the class goes, we might conclude with a performance of some kind.

We open up a "room" on Zoom at 6 pm Pacific Time every Saturday evening. We start singing at 6:30 pm and we keep it going until the last person leaves. Feel free to come in anytime, and stay as long as you like. We run it kind of like a physical song circle. Everyone who wants to can sing once, and then we’ll do another round, and just keep going around as long as you like. Of course, it is totally fine to just listen and some people do. For more information, go to the heading ‘Song Circles‘ on this drop down menu.
