Thurs 20th July in Cruises, Ennis

Make your way into town tonight and join in with our open session at 8:30pm in Cruises Bar! I’ve a few photos from last Thurs (- some of you may have looked up the Facebook Group ‘Ireland’s Inner Beauty’ for the several Live videos taken that night;)) We had a lovely night with Andy, Paula and Patsy joining myself and Jimmy. We were delighted to have Andi again from NYC on fiddle and met David and his sister Angela on whistles and low whistles from Germany/Norway – friends of my friend Olaf Sickman! Maybe see you later. 🙂

Thurs night (6thJuly) in Ennis.

Join Jimmy Clancy (accordion) and myself, Áine (flute and whistle) in Cruises Bar from 8:30pm at our open seisiún – plenty of traditional Irish music and maybe some song and dance depending on who visits! Checked back in my phone camera and not one photo from last Thurs – but we had lovely music and lovely genuine visiting musicians!! Lots of thanks to our visiting friend Ronán from the Facebook group Ireland’s Inner Beauty who has taken many videos this past week of us both and shared them WORLDWIDE!! :0

Cruises Thurs night session


Thurs 8th June at Cruises Bar, Ennis.

Hi all! For those of you looking forward to joining in at the session with Jimmy Clancy from 8:30pm I’m delighted to let you know that you’ll also be playing tunes with Sorcha Curtin – a fine concertina player from Miltown Malbay who is standing in for me there for the night. May there be MANY, many tunes…and maybe a bit of dancing or a song? Have a great night and I’ll show some photos from last week when my signal improves enough to upload!! 🙂 Here are a couple of previous photos of Jimmy and of Sorcha though.. Ps – I’ll see you as usual with Jimmy next Thurs night 15th June!
