IRISH TRAD MUSIC SESSIONS at the Kelly Center 2nd Thursday each month 6:15-9pm. FREE. BYOB.
Led by Kirsten Erwin and Bob Michel
A traditional Irish session, open to all players and lovers of Irish dance music. Novices are invited to come listen, learn, and begin to play along. The first half hour (6:30-7) is devoted to more familiar tunes and a more relaxed pace, for the benefit of less experienced players.
Kirsten Erwin and Bob Michel are stalwarts of Philly’s Irish music scene. Kirsten is an accomplished and eclectic player whose whistle and flute have enlivened ceilis, contras and country dances up and down the East Coast. Bob’s a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer and serial session leader who’s been playing traditional music for more than 50 years.

For all events, we are focusing on SAFETY. We have improved air filtration inside the Kelly Center for the safety of Customers, Staff and Performers. We have upgraded to Hospital Grade HEPA air filtration, Negative Air Ion filters and Apple Catechin filters with antiviral and antibacterial properties. These upgrades trap and deactivate microscopic bacteria and viruses, and can diminish or prevent the spread of diseases. Our HVAC draws in fresh air from outside, completely turning the inside air over every 5 minutes. We open the windows when appropriate to improve fresh air flow.
