How to Be Irish in Philly

How to Be Irish in Philly This Week

Short week in the land of Irish Philadelphia, people. We’re all—or mostly—Christmased out.

Here’s what’s on:

Saturday, December 28

The great Philadelphia Irish band Jamison holds court at Curran’s Tacony, 6900 State Road in Northeast Philly. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. Curran’s is a great place to see and hear them. Hoist one for us.

Sunday, December 29

The holidays are not completely over, particularly for those of you who claim County Dublin heritage. Dublin Society Philadelphia hosts its Christmas party at the Plough and Stars. 2nd Street between Market and Chestnut, starting at 12 noon. Bring the family, and up the Dubs!

Friday, January 3

The Philadelphia Ceili Group hosts its first First Friday Music Session of 2020, hosted by fiddler Hollis Payer, from 8 to 10 p.m. This is a rollicking way to start off the new year. If you’ve never been, go. If you play an Irish instrument, definitely go and join in on the tunes. The fun all takes place at the Irish Center, 6815 Emlen Street in Mount Airy.

Now is as good a time as any to check out our great Irish events calendar. You’ll be the first on your block to know what’s going on.
