Katie’s

The monthly open Irish music session from the Grafton Street Pub is moving to Katie’s for the fall of 2019. The session will run from 7:30-10:00pm on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The spirit of the session will remain the same. A set of experienced players will be present at each session but musicians of ALL levels are welcome. In the tradition of seisiuns, the focus will be on instrumental tunes with some traditional songs mixed in. A set of tunes is posted at the Grafton Street Open Irish Session web site but players are free to call whatever Irish tune they like when it’s their turn to lead. We’re happy to have less experienced musicians and students start and lead sets at their own pace. A set of session guidelines is also posted at our web site. Katie’s is at 145 W Main Street in Smithtown, right near the LIRR rail station.

In January (or maybe February) of 2020, we’ll resume first Monday of the month sessions at Grafton Street Pub in Hauppauge, BUT WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE HOLDING SESSIONS AT KATIE’S ALL YEAR ROUND on the 2nd (or sometimes 3rd) Wednesday of the month.

Re: Katie’s

Our monthly sessions at Katie’s are going strong. We’ve been getting at least a dozen musicians at each session. Katie’s is a great space for music. Starting in January of 2020, we’ll be meeting at Katie’s on the 3rd Wednesday of each month 7:30 to 10pm. We’ll also be adding a second monthly session - probably the first Monday and probably also at Katie’s. I’ll provide confirmation before the start of the year.

Re: Katie’s

This post is overdue. We shut down our sessions (temporarily!) last March. We’re staying in touch on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/654639828323160) and arranging informal small outdoor sessions until the day arrives when it’s safe to gather our group in a pub again.

Re: Katie’s

We haven’t resumed sessions at Katie’s but we kept in touch through the pandemic and in recent months have been playing at the AOH (Ancient Order of Hibernians) Hall in Mount Sinai and at the Westhampton Beach Brewing Company.
