CH - Lausanne MTI session - Variable venue

Hi all.

A session is going on for the last 6 years in Lausanne every other Thursday evening. Next ones will be : 12 jan 12 - 26 jan 12 - 09 feb 12 - and so on…

It DOES change venue due to difficulties finding… one. Please contact me through to be sure 🙂

For the story, session happened in the past at : Kerrigan’s, Le Harpers, Café de Milan, Café Le Raccard, Brasserie Les Arcades, bar-pub La Galette. Do not contact those places : they will not know where the session will be.

Whatever the weather, keep the music goin’.

New Irish Pub McCarthy’s in Lausanne ! The place for the sesh.

Hi all.

It looks like our new session venue will be the recently opened Irish Pub “McCarthy’s” in Lausanne. Good news folks ! It has been a bit hectic for the last while to find a place. But things are shaping quite nicely. The pub-style food is really nice at his place.

As usual, session every other Thursday at 19h00. Food at the same place at 18h15 for those who wants. The dates *never* _ever_ change. Yet, some sessions may be low tide or cancelled, or moved for different (uninteresting) reasons. Over the last 11 years it was cancelled maybe 3 or 4 times only. But it moved quite many times.

If you want to be sure things are happening, or if you come from fare away, please double check before hand : whatsapp me or phone me at +4 one 774IO5I ten . Do it !

Next dates :
and so on…

What ever the weather, keep going.


Re: Irish Pub McCarthy’s

Hey ! Do you know if there are musicians who play Irish music in Yverdon ? I go there for a conference the last week of March and would love to have a one night s… session ;)

Hey hey.

The new venue for this session is : Taco’s Bar - Rue de Genève 17 - 1003 Lausanne - - +41 21 320 15 25

Indeed : would you believe it, The Mc Carthy’s (real Irish pub, Irish owned and tended, (with really good pub food)) did not want us any more. Well… Let’s have tunes in a Mexicana atmosphere then. We will see how it works.
