Irish Session in Café Feestzaal "1614". STOPPED!!

This Irish Session in Cafe Feestzaal "1614" existed from 2002 until 2007 and was about once in 2 months, not in summer, 16:00 h.
For the data see Traditional Celtic Music & Dance in Nederland - Agenda.

Jeroen Wolters and Monique Ruijl opened their pub in 2002 and are organising music afternoons every Sunday.
Several genres of music can be heard: jazz, blues, pop, rock, gypsy and folk.
These events are all concerts or sessions in an easy atmosphere.

In November 2002 was the first Irish Session, initiated by Ruud Bruyns (a lover of Ireland and Irish culture and owner of a house in the West of Ireland near the holy mountain Croagh Patrick) and Geert Titsing (ex-fiddler of traditional Irish band "Kilshannig", fiddler of Gypsy band "Balaton" and ex-fiddler of "Binneas", playing now in "O'Branons") and supported by Eric Hendriks (guitar, played in folkgroup "Windvlaag" and "Binneas") and Eltjo (whistle, accordion, melodeon, see www, Played in "Stendelaar", "Buskers", "Shannon" and "Binneas"), all living at that time in Monnickendam.

It evolved into a great session with a relaxed atmosphere with tunes and songs.
This session was special, because not only jigs and reels were played, but also all other kinds of Irish music, like pub songs, sensitive balads, sean nos singing, slip jigs, hornpipes, polkas, slow airs, O'Carolan tunes.
It was also special, because it was not only visited by musicians, but also visited by listeners and dancers.
Care was taken, that all musicians got a chance to play and start a tune or song and that there was a good balance between all kinds of Irish music.

The other regular musicians:
Ome Joop (harmonicas),
Anthony de Waal (cittern, mandola, whistle, flute, bodhrán, www, played in "Stendelaar" and "Binneas" and is playing now in "Banshee"),
Piet Karregat (vocal, guitar, tin whistle, bodhrán, www),
Dick Niekus (fiddle, concertina, played in "Poitin", "Unicorn", "Portside" and "Fanach" and is playing now in "Banshee"),
Ger Cloosterman (accordion, whistle, bodhran, played in "Portside", "Mullen's Men" and "Emerald" and is playing now in "O'Branons"),
Jantine Leeflang (vocal, tin whistle, guitar, is playing in "Baloney"),
Ruud Schreijer (vocal, guitar, low whistle) and Willem (vocal),
