Lanigan’s Pub Chicago: Session

The session at Lanigan’g begins at 9:00 p. m. on every Sunday. Regulars at this session include Kevin Henry on pipes and flute with great stories and poetry as well, Albert Neary on Flute, Malachy Touhy on Bodhran, Pat Cannady on pipes, Karen Cook on Fiddle, Joe O’Shea and Francie Campbell on the box, among others. This session is the real thing with many of the venerable great Irish musicians in Chicago.

This is a highly welcoming session with a very attentive audience.

Lanigan´s Pub, Chicago.

Glad to see this this session is still running.
While visiting Chicago a couple of years ago, I visited this pub as somebody had told me it was where I could find Kevin Henry.
I was made very welcome, the tunes were great and all the musicians contributed to what was, for me, a thoroughly enjoyable session.
Kevin Henry is not to be missed. He is one of the great old-timers, a fine musician and generous with his music.
As Timcelt says, this is the real thing !

This session continues to be one of the great sessions in Chicago. Regular musicians attending include the well-known great musicians Kevin Henry, Albert Neary, Francie Campbell, Mike McGrath Frank Burke, and Malachy Towey. Other great musicians who drop in from time-to-time include Larry Nugent, Sean Gavin, and when he is in town, Mick Gavin from the Detroit area. This is a very traditional session where beginning and intermediate players can sit in and play with some of the great, most experienced musicians around. This session begins at 9:00 p.m. and continues frequently until 12:30 a.m. and sometimes later.
