WEEKLY IRISH MUSIC SESSION RETURNS AT NEW TIME, NEW PLACE

Champaign-Urbana's longest-running weekly Irish traditional music
session will resume on Wednesday evenings beginning August 8th, from
8:30 to 10:30 pm at Dublin O'Neil's, 301 N. Neil Street in Champaign.

Jake Schumacher, who leads the session, said, "We want to thank Dublin
O'Neil's for making the Wednesday evening session a welcome addition to
their music line-up. The genial and cozy Irish pub atmosphere should
provide a great listening experience for old and new fans of Irish
traditional music. And we want to thank Bentley's pub for their support
of the weekly session over the last decade."

The session focuses on the traditional dance music of Ireland--jigs,
reels, hornpipes, waltzes and much more--played on authentic Irish
instruments including fiddle, button accordion, concertina, piano, pipes
and tenor banjo. Throughout the evening occasional songs are sung and
stories told as well. Musicians with some experience in playing Irish
music are welcome, and those with an interest in learning to play Irish
music are encouraged to come and listen, as well as all who enjoy Irish
and Irish-American culture, food and drink. For more information,
contact Jake Schumacher at boscapod@gmail.com.
