The Green Linnet

Good atmosphere, reasonable prices. The pub is owned by Eoghan Lucey, a good Irish singer.

Pool, darts, sport on TV …

Re: The Green Linnet

On which days/hours is the session held?

Re: The Green Linnet

As of early 2018 (I’m posting this right now from the bar, after asking the bartender) the session is held every Monday night. They also have Jazz Manouche night on Sundays (in case anyone is interested).

Re: The Green Linnet

What time does it start?

Re: The Green Linnet

To answer my own question: It starts at 9pm. The owner of the bar also plays, and this can go very late into the night! Lots of fine musicians here and very welcoming. For those who don’t speak french, everyone here seems to speak english.

Re: The Green Linnet

Many places are closed for vacation. Is the session happening tonight August 20? If so I will bring my banjo for tunes!

Re: The Green Linnet

The session that was suspended this summer (or replaced by Hibernian pop) has resumed this Monday, Sept 3 2018. Eoghan the boss is not there, so we lack a beautiful Irish tenor for another week (I am a singer but a limited barytone). Last session was graced by the presence of Andreas from Stockholm, a talented fiddler, and a French Bodhran player whose name I forgot. Remember, all are welcome, as long as they love the music!
Slan, and drive cautiously ! ;)

Re: The Green Linnet

Is this session still going on? I’m looking for a session this summer when I’m in Paris for a few days.

Re: The Green Linnet

Yup the session goes on but I do not know about this summer as everyone will be away, presumably in Ireland to recharge at the golden source (poetry going on here…) I’ll ask Eoghan Lucey, owner of the pub and main singer of the session.

Tonight June 3rd Eoghan told me he cannot sing do to a sore back, and one one the main fiddlers is resting at home. Gonna pop in and check whether we can arrange something. Starts at 9pm local time, ends when the horses are tired.

BTW : of know, the Sunday session that started at the Auld Alliance three weeks ago is already dead. Too bad I heard it was good.

Re: The Green Linnet

I think I’ll be in Paris this coming Monday night (10th). Hoping there’ll be a session here…

Re: The Green Linnet

Oi everyone.

Today is Monday the 5th of August and I am trying to organise a session at the Green Linnet at 9pm. Is anyone in town with his instrument?

For the moment being only singers are listed.

Re: The Green Linnet

Nous ne changeons rien pour 2020, les Sessions du Green Linnet auront lieu le Lundi à partir de 21h !
Il se peut toutefois que certaines sessions soient annulées pendant les périodes de vacances scolaires ….
Comme à notre habitude, nous apprécions la visite de musiciens de passage, cette session se veut ouverte, et parfois même il nous arrive de recevoir certains "pros", le dernier en date : Gilles Apap…
Alors musiciens, chanteurs, amateurs de musique irlandaise, vous saurez dorénavant quoi faire le Lundi soir a Paris !
