SUMMER JAM SESSION
Hi there :)
I am an Irish guy called Cavan and it's a pleasure to welcome you to my page and hopefully to SISSI on the Greek island of Crete. I have travelled almost all of Europe west and east, and a little in Asia, had a lot of fun and have enjoyed a varied, interesting life.
Today I am running a popular Irish bar which is very much a music bar, and being a musician, singer/songwriter, this chilled out lifestyle really suits me! The bar is in a picturesque and beautiful working fishing village called Sissi. Situated on the north coast of Crete, the village is a little piece of tranquility and is loved by many repeat visitors every summer.
THE ANNUAL SUMMER JAM SESSION
This year's JAM SESSION will hopefully be from April, along with the live music in the bar. I don't need normal everyday help in the bar as l already have my staff, BUT, I will again be welcoming many new and also returning. "WORKAWAY MUSICIANS" from different cultures, jamming and relaxing together. Arriving, meeting overlapping and leaving all through the season from April-October. Previous years have been really fantastic with many new friendships being formed, and its always a great time for all.
Accommodation in the summer will be sharing an apartment near to the bar, or possibly a tent on the well equipped Sissi camping, (showers, kitchen, swimming pool with snack bar). OK so to your "work" this will be to spend approx 30 minutes mid morning with others helping to prepare the bar for opening. Then later in the afternoon a jam and fun at the bar for a little time each day. You should assume it will be really warm/hot, so you will get a few free cold drinks from the bar.
It will be arranged that you have time free to explore, or to enjoy the sun and the sea
There will be a meal and snacks provided, or an allowance if you prefer to buy and self cater.
There are already many enquiries, with many more interested in these places, so if you would like/want to come, and you know when, it is best to make a provisional reservation as soon as possible.

See you all on Crete :0)
Pratique d’une langue
The summer jam is bringing musicians together from many countries. All with a common passion and has very often been the start of many new friendships.
2022 SUMMER JAM SESSION
Basically a few hours helping, (playing/jamming) the rest of your time for relaxing, walking, talking, maybe exploring, whatever you feel. There are many archeological Minoan sites around the area, the main one of course being Knossos. The second most important archeological find on Crete is right here in Sissi, its not open to the public but I can arrange a private tour.
WORKAWAY MUSICIANS- Workawayers who play music, meeting others, relaxing, jamming, chilling out, and as for your "work"? Coming into the bar early afternoon, help clean up for approx 30 minutes. Then jam have fun with and for everyone. Some have wanted to perform a few numbers at night which is really appreciated and enjoyed. There will also be the bonus of rewarding "Cold" drinks from the bar!! This is all that is expected from you, just to relax and play.
I also have a project in mind to start a small music festival here which I would like to see grow annually and would welcome people to offer ideas and help with this. Especially musicians with this background and/or knowledge.
NOTE; For musicians.
In the bar and the apartment, I have 8 guitars, 4 amplifiers, microphones, keyboards, PA, mandolin, banjo, balalaika, concertina, bodhran, bones, fiddle, tin whistles, cajun drum, bongos. What can we do in our free time?
A modern fitted apartment above the bar, with the front terrace overlooking the main street. Through the large modern lounge to the back bedrooms, one of which will be yours. It is a secure lockable room with an outside terrace overlooking the little harbour.
Crete is a big and beautiful island with so many places to explore, it is the largest of the Greek islands and the most southerly part of Europe and if walking is your thing, there are costal walks, hills (and mountains) or small country roads through the olive groves. You will often see the buzzards and eagles around the hills and olive groves. :0)
