I'd think an A clarinet (common in orchestral music) would be the thing to use with ITM. (Well, the G mentioned above would be even better, I suppose, but as far as I know those are far less common.)

The guys keep on encouraging me to bring my bassoon to the session...

I think you should do it. Just the once, of course. They'll talk about it for years. :thumbsup:

I played whistles for a while with a bluegrass circle. Same format as a session and a few of the same tunes. I was the only non-string instrument in the circle, so I was the "unusual instrument."

G clarinets with Albert System keywork are commonly used in Turkish music, they are also known as Turkish clarinets. The fingering on the bottom octave is very similar to a keyed D flute (including foot with extra notes for C#, C and B). Six fingers down plays a D, and the scale going up lifting one finger after another is the D scale with F# and C#. F nat is played forked, C nat as well, or with a C nat key. So it is easy to migrate from flute or whistle fingering to G Albert system clarinet. - But because it is not Boehm system, it is not regarded a "proper" clarinet fit for classical music. It has less keys and therefore less scale possibilities than a Boehm system clarinet. But just listen to Turkish clarinet players to hear how expressively such clarinets can be played!
