Traditional Irish Music Seisiún
Wednesday nights at Harrington’s Terry Weir hosts a traditional Irish Seisiún (or session,)which is a gathering of musicians to play together. At the session you may hear tunes such as jigs, reels, hornpipes, airs, and such from Ireland on instruments like the fiddle, accordion, recorder, tin whistle, or even a guitar. You will hear songs sung with accompaniment and even the occasional verse or poem recited. From time to time there may be step dancing, too. The tunes start at 8:30 every Wednesday night and go until 11:30.
