How to Be Irish in Philly

How to Be Irish in Philly This Week

We don’t have a full week of events, but, hey, the weekend itself is packed with stuff to help you get into an Irish state of mind.

Here’s what’s on.

Friday, September 25

Maggie’s Boots—the talented trio of fiddler Hollis Payer, accordionist Rob Curto and cellist Melissa Brun—will host an online concert, starting at 7 p.m. Donations via PayPal and Venmo happily accepted. Check it out here:

Also tonight, Country Dance New York hosts “The Queens of Harps,” a special Zoom concert featuring Tomoko Sugawara and Philly own Ellen Tepper, who will showcase harp music “spanning centuries of repertoire, both familiar and exotic.” It all starts at 7 p.m. Details here:

Friday, September 25-Sunday, September 27

If you’re hankering for live music and you happen to be down the Shore—and especially if you’re missing the annual Irish Fall Festival—check out Jamison Celtic Rock at North Shore Bar and Kitchen, 301 North New York Avenue in North Wildwood, starting at 6 p.m. And if you miss Jamison tonight, check them out at the same place Saturday night, also at 6. Sunday night, the band will be playing at Seaport Pier Restaurant Bar, 2201 Boardwalk in North Wildwood, right after the Eagles game ends. Reservations are strongly recommended for all performances.

Also all weekend long … Anglesea Pub, 116 West 1st Street in Wildwood, carries on the festival tradition with tunes in the beer garden by Ray Coleman, Neil Mac Thiarnáin, Jamie Ratchford, CJ & Seamus, Mike Shackleton and Callie Pirog and more. Irish food and adult beverages, too, of course.

Sunday, September 27

Fiddler Caitlin Finley and flutist/piper Will Woodson host their weekly cocktail hour, streaming live on Facebook, starting at 5 p.m. They’re an incredibly talented duo. Tune in here:
