Subject: Folk scene in St. John's Newfoundland?

Hello all. Is anybody familiar with what's going on in St. John's, Newfoundland? I plan to be there on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and maybe Thursday in late May. I'm interested in sessions, song circles, or places to hear folkie bands.

Thanks, Marion

O'Reilly's
Open Mic Night

5pm - Chris Hennessey
10pm - Open Mic
12am - Rob Cook and Larry Foley

Shamrock City Pub
Open Mic

with Chris Ryan and Ronnie Power from Kilkenny Krew

By far the best I have ever attended is at "Auntie Crae's on Water Street. It is usually a Noon event going into the late afternoon . Unfortunately I do believe it is only on Tuesday or Wednesday. Some Newfoundland Catter could confirm this.
Here is a site that you could bookmark and check on it as time draws near. Wish I could go. Winter or not.

You're going to love it!!!!!!

Try to find The Navigators or Shanneygannock playing somewhere. St. John's is full of great pubs and bands.

Thanks for the responses, guys. So Beer's favourite music venue is a grocery store? Cool.

That website also looks useful.

For the benefit of anybody else who may be going, here's what else I've found:

Song circle on the last Thursday evening of the month at the Crow's Nest: info here.

A guy I met on Youtube (Newfiefiddler - has several music videos up) sent me this message:

"St. John's has three sessions as far as I know: Erin's Pub on Water Street (Friday evening), O'Reilly's Pub on George Street (Saturday evening) and Bridie Molly's on George Street (Sunday afternoon). I have been to either place to take in a session for a while now but I imagine they still have them there. "

Auntie Crae's Store. Hope this works and you should recognize a few players. The young lady on the fiddle is from Ireland but I didn't get her name.
