Mixed Lumpy

'Mixed Lumpy' are two adjectives describing Sessions. Lumpy refers to the particular rhythm of English Dance Tunes, particularly Polkas, Reels, Jigs and Hopsteps. Many groups such as Housewives Choice refer specifically to the lumpiness of English Music.

Mixed refers to a relaxation of strict rules about the type of music so that any type of music can be palyed although that still means traditional in most cases. Typically Mixed broadens a session out to British but in many cases, it goes as far as European and even American.
