Nelson Bar, Spitalgasse 34, Bern
There was an Irish session on 18 Sep 1999: "At the occasional organised sessions in Bern, the specialised repertoires and virtuoso tempos of the few participating Berner bands increasingly leave visiting players with the feeling the word 'session' is being devalued. Such events may be (for the chosen few) modestly profitable, but aren't conducive to musical growth. With this in mind, an initial (and possibly roving) session is born. Musicians of all standards and origins are very welcome. With player approval, this has the potential to become a regular monthly event. We are open to further venus suggestion from knowledgeable Berner pub goers."

Transit, Basel
Sessions 1st Sat. "With the change of pub ownership, these sessions have been suspended until next spring, and will likely reopen at a new location, rumoured to be the Volkshaus."
