Sessions at The Ship

Folk music sessions start at Irvine’s Ship Inn on Tuesday 1st April and it’s no April Fool ruse! The Ship Sessions start on April 1st and will continue weekly thereafter. The starting time is 8pm and as with all such Sessions, there is no admission charge.
The new development came about when Joyce Hodge and Anne Clarke of Irvine Folk Club were discussing plans for this year’s Marymass Folk Festival with Chris and Jamie Murray of The Ship where Festival Sessions take place.
Anne said, ‘In the course of conversation, it quickly became obvious that The Ship would be an ideal venue for Sessions on a regular basis. Chris and Jamie were keen on the idea and we were confident that singers and musicians would be equally keen. We’re delighted that Folk Music Sessions will be a weekly fixture on the Irvine calendar.
The weekly Sessions at The Ship at Irvine’s Harbourside are open to folk musicians and singers from all parts and, once established, you just wouldn’t know who might drop in! Budding musicians are welcome and of course everyone who would rather listen than participate.
