Post: 01 January 2011 in Irish Rover
Trad Music Session - Irish Rover
The Session is an integral part of Irish culture. Throughout past centuries music, dance and song have been used by Irish people to socialise. Generations of Irish people came together not only to play music, but also to share news and gossip. We are a proud nation that has held on to these traditions and they are as important to us now as ever before.

Irish Rover Session!Our session takes place every Sunday—at around 7pm in the Celtic Cellar. Call in and experience an evening of pure Irish traditional music, played on instruments such as the bodhrán, uilleann pipes, flute, fiddle, accordion.
As in Ireland, whoever wants to play is welcome. Maybe there will be three musicians, maybe thirty, you never know your luck. Our session has grown over the years, the musicians coming together, not because they are booked to play a pre-arranged gig, but because they love to play music, to exchange tunes, ideas  and banter. All of this creates a very enjoyable atmosphere—a real taste of home.
Welcome home Irish Rover session!

Music is such an important part of Irish life, that we went to great lengths to be able to re-introduce live music to the Irish Rover after a forced separation in the last couple of years. The refurbishment of the Celtic Cellar included the installation of sound proofing measures, to ensure that we will be able to offer you live music for years to come. 

We were delighted to be able to welcome the session musicians back in the autumn of 2013 and we look forward to many a lively session on Sunday evenings in the future.

Our session enjoys great recognition among folk musicians around the country and over the years, we have had the pleasure of welcoming many a talented musician from Ireland to play with our regular participants; Alan Maguire, Blackie O'Connell, Dessie Kelliher, Shane Mulvey and Siobhán Peoples, to name but a few.... Drop in and quote Christy Moore "you never know who will be hanging about".
