How to Be Irish in Philly

How to Be Irish in Philly This Week

A nice, crowded calendar for you this week, including a few live acts. Live, in these times, is nothing short of great. Pandemic restrictions apply, of course, but we’ll take what we can get.

Without further ado:

Friday, January 22

Kevin O’Shea performs for you at the New Deck Tavern, 3408 Sansom Street in University City, starting at 5 p.m. The New Deck is a real landmark. If you haven’t been, go.

Seamus McGroary plays the Henry James Saloon, 577 Jamestown Avenue in Philadelphia, starting at 6 p.m. The folks at Henry James promise the Guinness will be flowing. Always a good thing. And you get to listen to Seamus, too. Even better.

Catch the Jamison Duo—that’s Jamison Celtic Rock front man Frank Daly and fiddler Alice Marie—at Tom N Jerry’s, 1006 MacDade Boulevard in Folsom. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. Social distancing and reduced occupancy rules apply. It’s a last-minute gig, Frank says, so please do spread the word.

Irish songbird Mary Courtney is back with her Friday night Facebook concert, starting at 6 p.m. Catch her show here. Tips gratefully accepted.

Saturday, January 23

The Jamison Duo appears again at Haggerty’s Cage, 2373 MacDade Boulevard in Holmes, starting at 7 p.m.

Sunday, January 24

And yet one more time … it’s the Jamison Duo at Ojung’s Tavern, 1625 South Second Street in Philadelphia, starting at 3 p.m.

Tuesday, January 26

The Irish Diaspora Center hosts an online presentation, “Effectively Reach Your Expectations,” from 4 to 5 p.m. Irish-based Sharon D. Shannon will help you work out your goals for the new year—something we all need to be thinking about now, if we haven’t already. It’s free. Email to sign up.

And looking ahead just a bit:

Sunday, January 31

The Shantys take the stage at Gaul & Company Malthouse, 704 Huntingdon Pike in Rockledge, starting at 3 p.m. Haven’t we all missed them?

And that’s it for now.We’ll see you next time. Please stay safe.
