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.
