Claddagh Irish Trad Session 09/24/2008 (and every Wednesday)

Today I went to the Claddagh Irish Pub on the North Side in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

I am not sure how long they had this Irish Trad session, but it was my first time attending.

I was amazed!

Claddagh is a small Irish Pub chain http://www.claddaghirishpubs.com/ with very beautiful pubs, great food and of course alcohol.

Anyway, this session was great. Best I had since Ireland - of course, I don't find that many in Indy... especially on the north side.

11 musicians! Multiple Fiddlers, Flutists, Guitar/Mandolin, Bodhran/spones/bones and... what totally surprised me... an uilleann piper!!!!

I was in heaven. Nobody felt much like singing, but thats ok, they had great tunes. There was great learning going on too, if someone didn't know tune, they played some bars and then everybody joined in.

I am always amazed to see how people can learn tunes so fast.

I'll be back soon to it... maybe next Wednesday.....!! :)

This session has moved to a new location. We are currently playing our North Indy Irish Session every Monday night from 7:30 to 10:30, at the Brockway Public House on Old North Merdian St. Just East of the Meijer Shopping Center. This is a very informal session where beginers and advanced players get together for the love the the music and company. The Brockway has a great pub atmosphere and they are very supportive of the session.
