vectis What Do You Call Your Singing Session ?? (43) RE: What Do You Call Your Singing Session ?? 20 Jun 18

In England I went to a lot of 'sessions' and 'singarounds' and 'song and ales' (these mainly lasted for a weekend.

Here in New Zealand there are šome all ye's', ˇpen mics' which are not acoustic, acoustic sessions which usually have a plethora of mics and 'blackboard concerts'which, again, is usually amped. I run a session called an ßcoustic music night 'which is mainly acapella singing and bush poems AND NOT A BLOODY MIC IN SIGHT. When trying to think of a name for a get together of singers, bush poets and musicians we ended up calling it a 'folk gathering'.

I reckon you can call it whatever you like , people will come once they know what is going on if it suits their wants.
