The Gables is home to the Trad Session for over 30 years.

The session has been visited by travelling musicians from far and

wide with many diverse cultures. They have been tutored in all

forms of music, classical, jazz, folk and blues but in some way all are drawn to the allure of traditional Irish music. They are drawn to the allure of

the session. The way in which a group of musicians can gather,

some having met only for the first time, pick a set of random tunes

and yet all know exactly when to start, change and stop, all in

perfect unison. Yes the phenomena of the musical gathering that

is˜the session"

Never miss an event or new attraction in Cork.
