A weekend filled with Irish music

This past St. Patrick’s Day was yet another fun weekend filled with some amazing music. The weekend for me started off at the weekly Irish session at Bagitos, where¬†piper Michael Cooney¬†generously shared some tunes. The place was so packed with musicians it was hard to find a seat.

What is fun about this session is that many great musicians from near and far are always stopping by for some tunes. If you like traditional Irish music, this is the place to be every Saturday from 2-5pm.

Here are some photos from last weekend, thanks to Annabel!
