Little by little, we’re getting into the Irish swing of things again. Not a lot, but a few events worth mentioning as we head into the next couple of weeks.
We’ll start with Saturday, July 11. John Byrne and Andy Keenan will be playing at Burlington County Farmers Market, 500 Centerton Road, Moorestown, New Jersey. The tunes start at 8:30 a.m. John says they’ll be tucked away in their chicken cage—not completely sure what that means—safely distant from their audience. Details here.
If you’ve missed Jamison Celtic Rock—who hasn’t?—check out the band’s acoustic act Sunday, July 12, at Keenan’s Irish Pub, 113 Olde New Jersey Avenue in North Wildwood. Otherwise known as the Irish Riviera. The music starts at 6 p.m.
Jumping ahead to next Sunday, July 19, the Philadelphia Folksong Society is hosting an online concert by The Screaming Orphans. (Video below.) We’ve caught their act many times—probably the first time at the late, lamented Midwinter Scottish and Irish Festival in Valley Forge—and we can totally vouch for them. They’re a don’t-miss, an all-sister band from Bundoran, County Donegal. The show starts at 2 p.m. The cost is $15. You have to be on Facebook to take advantage of the livestream.

On the same day, Jamison will be back at Keenan’s. Same time, 6 p.m.
Wish we had more, but honestly, aren’t you glad there’s something? Anything? We are.
We’ll update “How to Be Irish” when there’s something to write about. If you want us to have something to write about, we strongly advise that you post your event (it’s free) on our website calendar. Submit here.
We also check out listings on our Facebook page. Post it here. We can’t post what we don’t know about, so help us help you.
Take care until next time!
