Landmark Tavern session
Went to this session two weeks ago. Great session, great tunes. If you are in New York, don’t miss it. This and the Dempsey’s session on Tuesday are a must.
I checked it out on Monday and John Sindt was there playing! Very nice session. Fast tempo. Lots of songs mixed in.

I popped by on a Monday night when I was in New York, staying ‘round the corner from this session. I didn’t bring an instrument: I just wanted to listen. And boy, what a treat listening was.
At one point I counted six flutes and five fiddles (with the occasional harmonica, pipes, or concertina) playing some lovely tunes at a nice pace. It was a real joy.
