The music house.....

This is where we hang two nights a month to let some of the pent up creative juices loose.
We always have a grand time, that's for sure, but, some nights are just - prodigious. Last night was one of those nights - the craic was grand! (go here for an explanation of craic)
Thirteen musicians sitting in a circle in front of a roaring fire playing tunes. A pub full of listeners, Guinness and Smithwicks at each players side, and laughter in our hearts.
Some nights just don't get any better than that!


  1. You music night sounds like a great time! That looks like a fun place to spend some time.

    Just want to let you know that the link in the post isn't working. Google is doing some work messing with the templates so maybe that's why the link is down.

  2. Sounds like you could be in Ireland if you closed your eyes!

  3. When I was a grad student in Montreal I used to go with my friends to a little hole-in-the-wall pub where all the expat Irish musicians would go to jam. What a perfect way to spend an evening: cheap beer and fabulous music! Those evenings solidified my feeling that I should have been born with red hair and named Fanny O'Loughlin.

  4. Sounds like a grand old time! I know Mike and I would enjoy it! Have a great weekend!

  5. It really does sound like a great place to just go relax, hang out and have fun!! Enjoy your weekend--Although it will probably be a soggy weekend in our time zone!! :-)
