Because there’s not as much happening as in pre-Covid times, we’re looking forward a bit.
First up—and this is a don’t miss—the John Byrne Band is taking the stage for a socially distanced drive-in concert Saturday, August 1, in the People’s Light parking lot, 39 Conestoga Road in Malvern. John and the band are always a guaranteed good time. If you can, go.
Coming up sooner:
On Facebook Saturday, July 18, at 8 p.m. Irish time, 3 p.m. Eastern, our own Raymond Coleman is part of a huge cast of musicians worldwide playing for an NHS Fundraiser Gig. Check it out here. Donate here: https://gf.me/u/yfjb55
Jamison Celtic Rock will present its acoustic act Sunday, July 19, at Keenan’s Irish Pub, 113 Olde New Jersey Avenue in North Wildwood. The tunes begin at 6 p.m.

We want to remind you that we have a robust Facebook page where concerts and other events pop up all the time. So if you want to take part in the fun, you’ve simply got to be a member. Find out what 11,000 people already know: We’re happenin’. Here’s the page.
As we mentioned before, we will update “How to Be Irish,” probably sporadically, as events come to our attention. To come to our attention, 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. We’ve also noticed that events tend to happen all the time, but with so little notice—sometimes as little as a few hours—that we can’t add them to HTBI. So if you’re a musician or in a band, give us a week or so notice, and we can drive traffic to your event. The more this happens, the more money in your tip jar.
Take care and stay well until next time.
