Jam Session

If you’re looking for more live music after Kim Arrington’s concert at the NC Museum of History, look no further than the weekly Irish session at the Hibernian Irish Pub & Restaurant, where local and visiting trad players, singers, and the occasional Irish step dancers gather each week to share their passion for Irish music. The session is held on the upstairs library that hosts two convenient bars; in nice weather, the music will also spill out onto the outdoor patio located upstairs, too! The second floor of the Hibernian is also accessible via an elevator. Join the Irish session musicians for the last session of the year!

The session is free to the public, and it is open to musicians of all skill levels – participants at the jam range in age from 8 to 80. The session welcomes and encourages singing, dancing, and listening as well. Song keys usually depend on who is singing or leading the song at the time.

This session is open to Irish/Scottish/Cape Breton (commonly referred to as “Celtic”) style players and singers of all levels and ages. Session players will try to help those who are just starting out playing this music with resources for learning tunes and techniques for playing the tunes. It is recommended and encouraged for you to bring a recording device to record tunes played during the session so that you can go back and listen to the tunes on your own to learn new tunes and to learn the changes between the tunes.

No one knows all the tunes, so for the enjoyment of the group, it is recommended to sit out tunes you haven’t learned yet. This is common to all Irish sessions. At this session, you are welcome to listen (and record), and after the tune or set is over, you can (and should) ask what the name of it was.
