Tell us something.: Hello. I'm a historian and musician living near Washington DC. I play the bass and guitar and focus on jazz. I'm interested for reasons I can't quite explain in Irish music. I play the flute.

Tess Slominsky's new book Trad Nation is very good on this. Slominsky loves the music and the craic but has many well done examples of how the atmosphere at the session can have a damaging effect.
