Staten Island Arts (host venue varies)
Staten Island Arts Folklife presents the Staten Island Seisiún: an informal gathering dedicated to the practice and performance of music from Ireland’s west coast, most specifically east Galway and Clare. Founded by local favorites Linda Hickman, Douglas Barr and Bob Wright, the Staten Island Seisiún offers musicians and music lovers an afternoon of music and shared camaraderie.
The Seisiún takes place on the first Sunday of each month from November through June in venues and taverns around the island. The Staten Island Seisiún brings together local musicians with practitioners of traditional Irish music from the other boroughs and New Jersey in a celebration and sharing of musical traditions and talents.
Musicians of all levels and ages are encouraged to bring their own instruments and join in to expand repertoire and technique. Music lovers are welcome to come and listen, dance and enjoy this long-standing tradition. Sessions are free and open to the public. Food and beverages are sold separately through the host bars and venues.
