Hi

i'm going to be in Vancouver and maybe Banff this summer: any sessions, whistlers or C&Fers round that neck of the forest?

Brian,
There are popular sessions at the Wolf and Hound in Vancouver, on Broadway at Dunbar Street on the West side. Monday night is a beginner session and is big. Wednesday night is geared more toward intermediate/advanced players, and tends to have fewer players.
I'm reporting this to you but I haven't attended these; friends of mine attend regularly.
If you don't mind ferry rides, you can check out our little session at the Snug Cafe on Bowen Island every Friday from 7-10pm. It's a twenty minute ferry from Horseshoe Bay, which itself is a twenty minute drive from Vancouver. The Snug Cafe is a few steps from the ferry slip, and the last ferry leaves the island at 10:05 pm.
Small session, heavy on flute/whistle. Mostly Irish with some Scottish. Mixed tempo. Mixed ability. And the island is lovely and the ferry ride is fun.
We do a bit of a headcount in the days before session to get a sense of the numbers, so ping me closer to your visit if you want to venture out and I could let you know how busy we're likely to be.
Cheers, Mike
