In the Greater Boston area:
The Burren in Somerville, 7 night a week
Mon: Green Briar in Brighton
Tues: Druid in Somerville
Brendan Behan's & Finnigan's Wake (?)
Wed: McGann's in Downtown (?)
Mr. Dooley's in Downtown
Thur: Matt Murphy's in Brookline
Fri: Druid in Somerville
Pheonix Landing in Cambridge
Sat: Matt Murphy's in Brookline
Brendan Behan's in Jamaica Plain
Druid in Somerville
Green Dragon in Downtown
Sun: Druid in Somerville
Tir Na Nog in Somerville
Mr. Dooley's in Downtown
O'Leary's in Brookline
Green Dragon in Downtown

The ones with (?) I haven't heard of or been to recently, but I don't get around much anymore. The rest are ongoing on a weekly basis. These do not include the many sessions outside the Boston & immediate area. These are all usually well attended. Any where from 4-5 to I heard the Green Briar a week ago had upwards of 35, it wouldn't have been surprising to find there, I know Paddy Cronin & Larry Reynolds (& sons 1,2 or 3) & likely Seamus Connelly, Johnny Cunningham (beginning to sound like a fiddle session?), Joe Duranne(sp?), Bill Black, & I'm sure there where some that sat out & said the hell with it.

A thousand thanks gang,
I knew you wouldn't let me down especially Liam's Brother (if I should call you that Dan), though if I could just ask a couple of more questions:-
Susan (showing my ignorance of US geography), is VT Vermonth or however it's spelt?
and secondly many thanks Barry and I'm sorry to be a pain, but is the info you gave me enough for anyone to find these places.. bearing in mind I'm over in the UK and don't know Boston at all..

Again many thanks guys(no sexism intended)

Hi Mick, it probably would be enough info to find those places. The weekly paper, the Irish Emigrant along with the Thus Calender section of the Boston Globe would list these places & in the local telephone book. Somerville, Cambridge & Brookline all border Boston & are not far from downtown. Brighton & Jamaica Plain are sections of Boston. VT is Vermont, my neighbor to the West, I'm actually in New Hampshire, 40 miles north of Boston. If you of anyone else need more info on places in Boston I'd be glad to help. Barry

Montpelier is in Vermont. 2 hours from Montreal, 3 hours from Boston, In fact, Montpelier is the state capital and a wee nice town it is, at 7,000. (VT is also the only state in the US with a Socialist in the US Congress. Nifty place.)

What about a list of all the Session Locations World Wide?

There are several local location finders but not a definitive list World Wide.

Information on our local session can be found at our website.

http://www.fyldefolk.freeserve.co.uk

Maybe I'll have to take on the task of a world session locator if no one else has - if one exists - please let me know.

many thanks for all the info re the Boston area.. I found a website here celticweb purporting to list all the Irish pubs in Boston.. They have a Druid in Cambridge which I am assuming is not the one you refered to in Somerville (Excuse my ignorance of American geography). There were one or two other gaps in the info they have compared to what you posted.. i.e. Green Briar, O'Leary's and Tir Na Nog (Didn't that used to be the name of a group in the 70's?).
Big Mick- Any help is greatly appreciated, no matter how long it takes to compile.. What I'm really after are venues that can be "recommended" as opposed to just listings out of local papers etc where it could be "hit & miss" as to whether you are going to get a good session or not.
SingsIrish (aka you know what it spells).. fancy meeting you here. I need not tell you about waiting for things and my patience, you know already.
Again thanks to everyone who has sent in suggestions here and by email.

Hi Mick Lowe, There's only one Druid, it's in Cambridge not in Somerville as I posted (your ignorance of American geography is more than just fine). The Green Briar is in Brighton. It's one of the largest Boston sessions which doesn't make it one of the best but you'll find other visiting headliners droping in on a few of their local peers there, it's probably the friendlest & the most tolerant towards those who are of less ability. This is an carrying on with alot of the same people that attended the Brookline Village Coach House sessions that ended when the place was sold maybe10 yrs ago. I remember at these sessions groups like Silly Wizard, Touchstone, Ossian, DeDannan & a host of others coming in to sit & play & sing. The Druid is somewhat of a younger crowd, very high quality & high energy. Both here & the Briar you'll find some singing too. O'Leary's (haven't been there in a very long time) is also of high quality but maybe not as high energy as the Druid & not much in the way of singing either. Tir Na Nog, I believe was the name of a group awhile back. I've never been here but have heard it to be a pretty good sesion, don't know about any singing here. Maybe half or better of the session pubs in Boston are owned by those that are musicians themselves, I'd like to find out if that's common in other areas? There's also a singing session (mostly Irish) at the Grand Canal in downtown on Canal St. Althought there aren't many sessions in the Boston area that really push singing since the Village Coach House you'll find that the music level is on the whole to be top shelf no matter where you go (which makes it a little hard on those not yet quite grounded). Good luck with the list Mick Lowe. Barry

Hi Mick!

I was at a great session in New Jersey on Sunday.

The first time I was invited to the place, there were accordian, bodhran and fiddle players falling off the walls. I went out there with Brian Conway, his sister, Rose Flanagan, his wife, Bernadette Fee Conway, and Eilleen Goodman expecting the same. Only one person came out of the "audience" to play with us. It was Eileen Ivers of Riverdance and Chieftains fame. All of the above grew up together in the same New York "hedgerow schools" of Irish music taught by the late Martin Mulvihill and the late Maureen Glynn. It was quite a night!

I have the name of the place and a rough idea of where it is. When I get the telephone number and other details, I'll send them along to you.

All the best,
Dan Milner
