Heorot Pub Irish Session Kick Off!

Welcome to Muncie’s very first Irish Session!!! Come enjoy a pint of ale and play some traditional tunes with us! The Heorot Pub is a viking themed pub, complete with wooden rafters, a roaring fireplace, absolutely NO TVs, and a full size dragon on the wall. The Heorot has won many awards in the world of craft beers, but also has wine & liquor available as well as delicious pizza. This is a 21+ venue. If you are considering coming out, please join us for this initial session - if it does well, we will start monthly sessions here. All traditional instruments welcomed including fiddle (and other bowed strings), pennywhistle (and other flute/woodwind instruments), harp (I will be playing mine!), accordion & concertina, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo (and other plucked acoustic strings), and acoustic percussion (bodhran & other frame drums or acoustic percussion that is not too overpowering). We are even open to having smaller bagpipes if they are indoor compatible. If you are new to sessions, come on out and we’ll have leadsheets & fakebook style music with melody and chords. Can’t wait to play some amazing traditional Irish music with you!!!

Hey Maevyn Stone - we’re very pleased to hear that a session is (re)starting in Muncie, and at the Heorot to boot! For purely historical accuracy, there have been sessions in Muncie before. The inimitable TJ Hull ran a session in Muncie for a while. After TJ left town we hosted a session at the Heorot on and off for a couple of years (give our best to Stan and his lupi 😊) before we left town. So you do have a historical foundation upon which to build that session. We wish you all the best and happy tunes!

BTW, we hope our dear friend Pat Kleeberg is aware of the session. She is a brilliant singer of traditional songs and a former regular at our prior sessions.

Oh very cool! I didn’t realize that. I am actually friends with Pat and she will be coming!! Stan actually just sold the Heorot about a month or two ago, but it will be in good hands. The owners of the Guardian Brewing Company (at MadJax) have purchased and are doing great things! They plan on keeping the same amazing vibe of course.

Hope you can make it out!!
