Of course there's also the problem at many Irish sessions where the players are more interested in recing each other than playing the tune well. In these sessions I would think it would be difficult to join in or pick up the tune. And sometimes that's the idea..............

There's no conspiracy behind my motives for setting tempos; I enjoy finding a nice groove more than playing for speed's sake. But even a nice groove can go by fast enough so people trying to pick tunes up "on the fly" will end up muddling huge sections and lagging behind. Besides, I would think that instead of struggling to play a tune you don't know it would be much more satisfying to just relax and enjoy the music.
