 Do you like Irish traditional music? Do you wish there was some-where you could play regularly? Miss the sessions that used to be everywhere in town? The Irish Club of Winnipeg is pleased to announce that Thursday Night Sessions are starting up at the Irish Association of Manitoba, at 654 Erin Street. The doors will open (along with the bar) at 7:30pm. This is an open acoustic session leaning towards Irish traditional music, but anyone is welcome. There is no cover. Also open to all ages. We plan to keep this open and loose and have people come and play by the fireplace for the joy of the music itself. 

If you don’t play, come and listen. If you want a break from the music, there is a back room away from the hurly-burly of modern life, where a quiet word can be had and a pint.  For more information, please contact Bridgette at or better yet, turn up on Thursday and check it out. We’d really like for this to be a regular session so let’s get together and play!

                                                     always be stretched

                                                                                And never in want.
