The SAMS session has a big black Visitors Book. Call it an innovation or call it an obsessive compulsive disorder, but contributors are invited to write a note about each song or tune that is performed. This makes interesting reading from month to month and also provides a great record of each memorable session, which is made available for you to read on this webpage. The following list should give a fair flavour of what went on, but it does not purport to be 100% complete or accurate. If you're worried about completeness and accuracy, just come along to the next session!
