The Trinity Hall Sessions Players
began on October 13th, 2002. Ken Fleming, host of the session,
approached Marius Donnelly of the Trinity Hall Pub & Restaurant with an idea to have a performance every
Sunday afternoon at the Dallas pub featuring the top players of traditional Irish music in the
DFW area and guest players from throughout the region. Marius loved the idea
and THSP has been playing ever since.
The format is similar to a session,
but players are invited and rotated each time to limit the number to four.
Normally, Ken who plays accordion and banjo, is joined each week by someone on
fiddle, flute, guitar/piano and/or bodhran. Essentially, it's a performance,
but it has an element of informality that makes the music fun for the
In the spring of 2004, the Trinity
Hall Session Players recorded their first CD called “Live at Trinity Hall” which is available for sale at the sessions. All of the proceeds go to support the Traditional Irish Music Education
Society, the organizer of the O'Flaherty Irish Music Retreat.
