This session occurs from 7 p.m. until 10:30ish on the 4TH Tuesday of every month. There are many solidly skilled players at the session, but all skill levels are welcome. Some instruments played there are concertina, mandolin, tenor banjo, guitar, fiddle, whistles/flute, and uillean pipes. We would be delighted for you to join us.

Still Happening

This session at Molly’s is still happening with a small but dedicated group of nice folks playing guitar, whistles, flutes, box and the occasional fiddle. Free pints, friendly staff and some people that listen! Come join us.

Is this still happening?


I am interested in the session at Molly’s Irish Pub. I am learning to play the Scottish smallpipes. I played the Highland pipes approximately 15 yrs ago. I am still learning music for the smallpipes but have been encouraged to also find a session to join.

I sent an email to the one listed but it bounced. I called the number provided and it is for the pub itself. The guy I spoke to said the session is on Tuesday but could not remember which Tuesday. Is it still the 4th Tuesday? He also said he thought that people meet at 6pm.

Thanks for any information you can give me.

Re: Is this still Happening?

Yes. Its the 4th Tuesday of every month. Very friendly, suitable for beginners. Very non judge-mental. Lots of laughter.
