Singing Seisiún

A monthly singing seisiún happens on the First Friday of the month. Generally, singing starts at 8:00pm unless otherwise specified. The locations vary.

The songs that we sing are generally Irish in origin, but we have had from time to time sung Scots, Welsh, and Cape Breton tunes. We also have some wonderful story tellers, sean nos singers, and poets in our group.

We have put together a set of standard songs in this book which you are welcome to print out. One of our regulars, John Hopkirk, also has a songbook we use. Or feel free to bring new songs!


Most months, the seisiún is hosted in private homes and space may be limited. Refreshments are often provided by the host or are brought by the participants. To provide security we do not publicly post phone numbers and directions to hosts homes, the details for any seisiún are available only by contacting the host via e-mail or through subscribing to the singing mailing list.
