Cracken Session

Members of Cracken Morris host a monthly music session:


On the third Tuesday of each month in The Railway Inn, Whaley Bridge, from 8pm.

(The 3rd Tuesday will be between the 15th and 21st of each month)

A mix of old and contemporary music in the traditions of:

England, Scotland, Wales, sometimes Ireland,

Continental Europe, Old-time America, Nova Scotia, Australia, and …


This is a joining-in session, with mostly tunes but occasional singing.

We’re a friendly bunch, looking forwards to people bringing along their favourite and newly-discovered tunes, but also happy to play those old favourites.

Ours is mostly a “style over speed” session.

Lets play dance music you could dance to, airs like you could sing them, marches like you could march to…
