How to Be Irish in Philly

How to Be Irish in Philly This Week

A relatively slow week is on tap, but … at a time like this, we’ll take anything we can get, right?

So here’s what’s going on:

Friday, January 15

Difficult choice tonight:

The effervescent Raymond Coleman will be playing at the Henry James Saloon, 577 Jamestown Avenue in Philadelphia, from 6 to 9 p.m. He’s always a guaranteed good time. Masks required, of course.

Jamison Celtic Rock front man Frank Daly is slated to appear at Gaul & Co. Malt House, 704 Huntingdon Pike in Rockledge, from 7 to 11 p.m. Also one of our very best performers. 

Saturday, January 16

Jamison fiddler Alice Marie will share the stage with Shaun Durnin at Haggerty’s Cafe, 2373 MacDade Boulevard in Holmes, starting at 7 p.m.

And looking ahead a bit:

Sunday, January 31

The Derry Society hosts the annual Bloody Sunday Mass at 2 p.m. at the Commodore John Barry Arts & Cultural Center (the Irish Center), 6815 Emlen Street in Philadelphia’s Mount Airy neighborhood. 

The Mass honors the 14 innocent lives lost on that day in 1971 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland. COVID-19 restrictions will be observed. Translation: face masks will be required. 

The Mass will be held in the Irish Center’s ballroom, with limited capacity.

For details, contact; Rosaleen Rotondi at 215-820-3572 or Frances Duffy at 610-446-1831.

And that’s it for this week. Take care, and see you next time.
