    Irish session in the States or in Ireland? I'm only familiar with the term from having lived in the States for awhile, can't say I've heard players here in Ireland use it or at least not in the musical circles I've moved in.

    My great grandmother used to say to us: ‘You carry on like that and you’ll be spending the night in the garden shed’.
    Or: ‘you’ll be out there with the banshees’. And other such words in Gaelic that I can’t remember, maybe it was wood-shed…

    ‘ a place, means, or session for administering discipline’
    Ouch! That sounds like a LOT of scales and arpeggios!

    In the states. It was a piper who was a former Bluegrass banjo player, so it makes sense...

    First heard the term when in junior high jazz band wanting to work on a tune. So that would have been 45 years ago here in the United States.

    Never have heard any of the folks who play non-American folk music use the term. There may be an equivalent in Sweden or Finland. Am just not aware of it.

    Not an expression I have heard used in my experiences of playing here in Scotland.
