Info about the Tune Supply Virtual Session:
Until March 2020, we’d met every Thursday night for nearly six years at Mary O’s in Manhattan’s East Village. When the pandemic started, we moved the session online! Between March 2020 and June 2021, we produced 75 virtual sessions and put over $40k into the pockets of traditional musicians. Now that some live music is returning we will be doing sessions intermittently. You can watch all of our past sessions here:

We’re hoping you will be doing from home what we usually do at your local Irish session pub. Have a bite to eat, enjoy a drink, and play tunes with us! If you’re playing along at home, we recommend that you do so with headphones on…makes it much easier. Don’t forget to interact with fellow session-goers in the live chat!
