Mike O'Regan has asked me to post details about the session
in Bloomington, Indiana. It is held at Bear's Place, on 1316 E. 3rd St.,
starting at 8:00 pm on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. (Exception:
this Sunday, July 3rd, Bear's is closed and there is no session.)
Typically from 5 to 15 musicians show up, and from 50 to 120
people come to listen. Guinness and Harp are on draft, and Bear's Place
is well air-conditioned, very necessary in an Indiana summer. An
unobtrusive sound system is used to throw more sound out to the listeners.
I expect the session on July 17 to be well-attended and
exciting, and the two sessions in August to be quieter. Starting in
September, they will all be big and bustling.
