Next-gen  sessions, designed for younger players of all ages, take place 2nd  & 4th Sundays every month, from 5-6:30 p.m. at Flanagan's Harp &  Fiddle (4844 Cordell Avenue, Bethesda, MD).  It's an inter-generational mix of kids and adults, a good place for  beginning and intermediate  players to learn some new tunes, share some  of their favorites, learn a bit about session etiquette and have some good craic.  Information about other local sessions can be found here
