OUR MUSIC SESSIONS HAVE CHANGED!

Our traditional Irish music sessions continue, but NOT as usual. Starting in October, all our sessions will meet Saturday afternoons from 4:00 to 6:00 at Starboard Brewing in downtown Sturgeon Bay at 151 N 3rd Ave. We will no longer meet at Kitty O'Reilly's Irish Pub. We've had a long stand at Kitty's, and we are thankful for all the support they have given us. In the end, however, the accoustics and seating arrangements at Starboard have won us over, and the 4:00-6:00 time slot works best for most of our players.

SO, we will now generally meet on the first Saturday and the third or fourth Saturday of the month at Starboard Brewing, all at 4:00-6:00 in the afternoon. Our schedules for sessions are shown below. As before, the sessions are not performances, but informal gatherings, and are open to all. If you're not sure about playing, come and listen!

October 8 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm
October 22 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm

November 5 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm
November 26 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm

December 3 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm
December 31 - Starboard Brewing 4-6 pm

-----------------------------------------

And don't forget our October dance! This is our annual Cy Rosenthal Memorial Dance, and master caller Tim Jenkins is coming up from southwestern Wisconsin to guarantee that a good time will be had by all. See the 2016 Dance Calendar below for dates and locations of future dances.
