Update for the O’Flaherty retreat benefit, 2006

Irish music fiddle playerAs mentioned here, there’s going to be a benefit for the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat at the Trinity Hall Pub on September 22. It’s shaping up to be a hot (indoors) night.

Funds raised from this benefit will help offset the cost in bringing to Texas some of the most accomplished traditional players from Ireland and the US to teach. The retreat is produced by the Traditional Irish Music Education Society, a non-profit organization, and sponsored by the Southwest Celtic Music Association and Trinity Hall Restaurant and Pub. Thanks in advance for all of your support!

The following people have committed to play that night:

  • 5 p.m. Trinity Hall Session Players
  • 6 p.m. Irish Rogues
  • 7 p.m. Jigsaw
  • 8 p.m. Behan
  • 9 p.m. Beyond the Pale
  • 10 p.m. Shift (formerly Busker’s Gate)
  • 11 p.m. Rogers, Hicks and Alfonso
  • 12 a.m. Spriggan

Admission is free, there will be a raffle drawing for prizes and proceeds from meals purchased at the pub will be donated to the retreat.

Several of us are going to be there throughout the night and so there will also be some dancing. Come on out and have some fun!
