Part of the fun of an Irish Music Session is the variety of tunes that we play! We have a bit of a Canadian Spin though, as we also incorporate some Sea Shanties and some other well-known Canadian & East Coast tunes.

As far as traditional Irish tunes are concerned, there are literally thousands of diferent tunes out there, and many tunes are also known by multiple names. In Trad sessions in Ireland, it's common for the musicians to all be playing slightly different versions of the same tune, and as long as it's in the same key it all works out and sounds pretty cool!

One of our main sources for the music is The Session which is a large database of traditional Irish tunes in multiple settings.

Our tunebook was created to have a small, core list of tunes that we can play from, and we are always adding to it. We have a running list of requests and are always working on adding new tunes to our repertoire. Check this site regularly for our most up to date tune book!

We respectfully acknowledge that we gather on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Snuneymuxw, Snaw-naw-as, and Stzuminus First Nations.
