CORNELIUS – The slow celtic session at the Charlotte Folk Society is an off-shoot of the Celtic session. This informal gathering of local musicians focuses on Celtic tunes played in the session style.

The goal of the slow movement is to allow people to ease into Celtic music by playing slower than at a regular session and by having a shorter list of songs than the regular session provides. Any beginners or intermediate-level players interested in easing into Celtic music, learning new techniques or experimenting with various instruments are welcome to join.

This month's slow session will be held Jan. 12 in Cornelius. For more information, visit their website and join the group's email list to learn the dates and times of future sessions.
