Late night open thread

Wrapping up another wonderful St. Patrick's Day with FourWinds and a quite spirited version of 'The Flags of Dublin'
Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Such a wonderful piece of music, The Chieftains and 'O'Sullivan's March'

Speaking of Ann Arbor, we mentioned Conor O'Neill's below but as Johnny recalls he had many a lunch at a greasy spoon called O' Sullivan's. Funny how that works out.

This image is celebrating it's ten year anniversary today

Taken outside Conor O'Neill's in Ann Arbor. Taken from Johnny's then office at a media/PR firm. It was taken at 12:30 in the afternoon for those scoring at home.

Feels like now would be a good time for 'Molly Ban'

The Chieftains and Alison Krauss with this yearly treat.

We're gonna start the official party on this side of noon

Just a wee bit early. Our first pub type singalong and call to tap the first keg of Guinness, The Dubliners and The Pogues with the timeless 'The Irish Rover'

You didn't think we'd have reels without jigs did you?

Morrison's Jig from the wonderful Katy Adelson

How about a few Irish reels to keep the morning going

Méabh O'Hare, Connor Byrne and Gerard Thompson playing some lovely reels for you to enjoy with morning coffee.

St. Patrick's Day dawns with The Chieftains and Sinead O'Connor

'The Foggy Dew' kind of sets and early mood and gets us going on St. Patrick's Day 2018.

Late night open thread

If tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day the Jersey City desk is open for some fine Irish music. Make sure to come on back.

Remember when NYC was cool?

Uh-oh, here come the comments. Johnny said cool, not comfortable. Where's the buzz on the streets? Who is the next big band or group of bands? Is the cronut the best the city that never sleeps can do anymore? Some of you know what Johnny is talking about. For the others, here, a history lesson from 'Hanging on the Telephone'
