The Trad Stops Here.

Over the years, we have been thrilled to offer intimate evenings with some of the best names in traditional music. Our Pub and Hall have been the setting for performances by Kevin Burke, Brian Conway and Felix Dolan, Niamh Parsons, Sean Tyrrell, Andy Irvine, John Carty, Joey Abarta, The Murphy Beds, Grainne Hambly and Billy Jackson, and many others. Our smaller spaces can often be 'just the thing' for the first concert in a tour, or the show that fits in beautifully between larger cities. Concerts are added throughout the season as space in the schedule permits, so be sure to "like" our Facebook page for the latest event details. 

In addition to our concert evenings, Pub Nights bring out our favorite local talent every Friday. From the Trad Session hosted by Armand  Aromin and Torrin Ryan attracting  area musicians, classic Pub Room entertainment after the fourth Friday lectures, to the Pub Sing where you can try your turn at a chorus among some of New England's finest a-capella voices- Friday night the Ceilidhe Club is the place to be.  Get the current round of info- sign up for our e mail list, or check out the latest newsletter here.  We promise a warm welcome and a fabulous time!

Frankie Gavin is one of Ireland`s greatest ever fiddle players. His name is immediately associated with the group De Dannan who were formed in the 1970s, and are credited with breaking new ground in Irish traditional music through innovative choices of material and arrangements and a unique style of playing. Frankie has recorded and played every genre of music from rock and roll with the Rolling Stones to jazz with Stephane Grappelli. He also has the distinction of playing for four US presidents. In addition to being a world-class fiddle player, Frankie is also a top class tin whistle and concert flute player.

Tickets are first come first served! See you there!
