We got 2016 off to a great start! Joining Niall O’Leary (accordion, keyboards, spoons, percussive dance) on successive weeks we had  Jake James sharing his music and dance talent // Tom Dunne (accordion & fiddle) // Kevin McCormack (guitar & vocals) //  Matt Mancuso (fiddle & guitar) // Niall Mulligan (fiddle & keyboards) // Isaac Alderson (uilleann pipes & flute) // Sebastian McLaughlin (banjo) // Linda Hickman (flute) // Liz Hanley (fiddle & vocals) // Brian Fleming (percussion & vocals)

You could and should pay big money to see some of these practitioners in concert format, but Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar is a more intimate venue where they share their talents in a more informal setting, no cover, all welcome to join in, sing, dance, play music, or if you don’t believe me, just watch!

Subway: 6 train to 28th Street, walk 3 blocks,
or M34A bus stops outside the door!

Hosted by Niall O’Leary
(Percussive Dance, Piano-Accordion, Keyboards, Spoons, Mouth Music),
with a different guest musician and guest dancers every week

Irish Dance Jam led by Niall O’Leary with other guest dancers,
All musicians, singers, dancers, listeners and lookers welcome

Call in on your way uptown or on your way downtown,
or on your way crosstown!
