One of the longest traditional music sessions is in Charlie’s bar every Sunday. The Session is hosted by Cork’s own Sean O’Driscoll, both a sweet and rhythmic bango player and a fine hand on the old style button accordion , along with his wife Mary O’Driscoll on the fiddle. To keep the Sessions fresh and real, each Sunday features a different guest musician, an ever changing array from some of Cork’s and Ireland’s finest traditional players. It is equally popular with musicians, listeners and tourists with Sean keeping the Session friendly and fun but also making sure to keep the music swinging. You never know who will turn up for a few tunes, for the chat and the laughs, to sing a song or just to listen and have a few pints. It’s never dull.
