Join LKQ and/or guest musicians at this regular session in the Harrison pub, one of London's top folk music venues. NB there is NO SESSION IN JANUARY 2016 as the pub will be closed.

Every first Sunday of the month you can play or listen, bring a tune to share or just enjoy the music and have a great meal. Free entry. Most instruments welcome but we regret brass only with mutes, and no percussion.
