Time to call it a day

Unfortunately I have made the decision to bring the MK Sessions website/blog to an end as social media has made it fairly redundant in recent years and I no longer get to many sessions so feel unable to maintain it as an accurate source of information. I hope some of you have found it useful over the years it has existed and that the local session scene remains healthy and thriving for all our local musicians.
All the best
Pete

Craig's list

This message was posted by Craig back in March and had disappeared down the board so I thought it worth  a re-post to refresh our minds.
 It lists some Northants sessions which I hope are still running,

(1) The George, High Street North, Tiffield, Northants. NN12 8AD, on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, from 8:45 - turn up, plug in, crack on. (2) The Plough, Watling Street East, Towcester, Northants. NN12 6BT, usually on the third Thursday of each month, from 7 'til 10 - a growing Open Mic which sometimes relaxes into an acoustic thing. (3) The New Inn, Silver Street, Abthorpe, Northants. NN12 8QR, on the second Sunday of each month from 3:30 - solos, duos, bands - try it. (4) The Plough, High Street, Everdon, Northants. NN11 3BL, on the third Saturday of each month, from 8:30.

Message from Kevin Adams

Hi everyone

First, my apologies for piggy-backing on Pete's session list, and
secondly my regrets that I never get to play with you all any more.
Sadly, my MS has progressed and my hands are unable to play stringed
instruments at all now. (No change there then??)

But... I am still making music- hurrah for computers! So here are the
adverts:

I have finished off a collection of songs which I began recording back
when I could play. It's called 'Sheltermore' and you can hear the songs
here:
https://kevadams.bandcamp.com/
(You can also download them if you are feeling generous enough to pay a
small fee :) ) My other two CDs, 'The Common Land' and 'Waiting   For
the Word', are also available on the Bandcamp site.

I have more music to hear at StudioBlend on Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/kev-adams-4
This is a mixture of work in progress, archive bits and pieces and the
more layered and orchestral stuff which is how I hope to work from now on.

Last advert: I am selling my instruments, because they deserve to be
played rather than hung on the wall looking sorry for themselves. They
are: Gibson mandolin, Martin Cole octave mandolin, Fender Telecaster USA
1978, Fender Capistrano acoustic and a cheap but nice, playable, Chinese
12 string acoustic. Get in touch if any of these are of interest.

I might even sell my fiddle to the right person...

End of waffle, thanks for reading this far if you have, and keep making
great music together.

Lots of love

Kev

ps if anyone feels like tweeting or Facebooking any of this I'd be very
grateful.

Disappearing sessions

It appears that the Watershed session in Newport and the Swan session in Old Stratford are no longer happening so have now been removed from the listings.
If you know of any session currently being listed that has definitely finished please leave a message on the board or mail me. It only takes a moment and could save someone a wasted journey.
Pete
