Roots School: Hiya guys. This Thursday we'll have another run through of the tunes we'll be playing at our Home Grown barn dance on 8th July. I've put out about 460 leaflets around the area, and expect to have posted approx 1200 by the time the dance draws close. We'll try to crack into tuition a little sooner than we did last time, and hopefully get a go at Freight Train which Ian has done so much work on. Later - and I've got so much on -I'll draft different parts for the instruments - but atm my feet are sore, my legs are tired and my mouth is too dry to moan :) See you Thursday. jt

Roots School: Hi guys, Roots School is on this Thursday - looking forward to seeing you all again after my short stay in Milton Keynes University Hotel. It will be the usual format of a bash then tuition then either more bashing or for those that want it one on one help. I'll be looking to do simple stuff, like sitting down and making some tea :) - beginner bohran, bones and beginner fiddle. Graham Tait has broken his arm - I won't tell you how, I'll leave that to him to explain when he comes back, but it looks like he's away from music for about 6 weeks while he's plastered ! Take care guys, see you Thursday. All the very best to you Pete from all of us art Roots School. Catchya - John Timpany

John Timpany: Pete, thank you so much for all the years of effort maintaining the site. It's been very valuable for me and for many others. All the very best to you mate - jt.

Edmund Flach: Many thanks for maintaining the site over many years, Pete. Being an occasional, "dip-in, dip-out" kind of folk musician the information on here has been invaluable for checking from one week to the next where and when I might find a session! Hopefully the information on Facebook and elsewhere will indeed fill the gap. Best wishes, Edmund
4 Apr 17, 10:14
Pete: I have been persuaded to leave the site on-line as a source of information but will no longer be publishing the weekly list. The message board will continue but the accuracy of the session list will depend on visitor input.
30 Mar 17, 18:11
Stewkley Bob: @Pete - That's a shame. Unfamiliar with the local session scene, I found the first few sessions I went to as a returning folky on here and have found much useful information over the intevening years. Thank you for all the work you have put into creating and maintaining the site/blog and best wishes to you. Bob.
29 Mar 17, 07:36
Pete: 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

Jon Marks: Full Moon at Cholesbury, this Sunday at 8pm - we're no longer in the restaurant, we're in the side room where we started.
15 Mar 17, 16:22
Roots School: On this Thursday. We have some beginner fiddlers attending as well as our usual more advanced group. The percussion group is steaming along with bones and bodhran - playing either is a great way to part of the music if you don't know the tune. Tutors include Ian Walker (guitar - many styles), Chloe Elizabeth Middleton-Metcalfe (fiddle - predominantly English), Graham Tait (whistle - different styles), Janice miller (guitar, bodhran and penny whistle), John Timpany (fiddle, whistle, guitar, percussion kettle and vacuum cleaner) Hope to see you there, :biggrin:
