Dancing at Lochrann’s March 22, 2009

Wheee! Another fun session at Lochrann’s. We were joined by a few more dancers and a new musician whose name I unfortunately failed to get.

We danced a couple of the Ballyvorney Jig Set, the Clare Lancers, Three Tunes, Four Hand, Siege of Ennis and a bit of stepping about.

This was a fun session in the new space at Lochrann’s. They recently expanded into a whole new room with a larger stage as well as an added meeting room that could work as a session space in a pinch.

Things were quiet enough that we had the new room mostly to ourselves.

With music played by Wendy, Joseph, David and Mark, Susan, Andi, Margi, Dwayne, Billye, Brandi, Grady, Karen and I danced several sets and some ceili dances along with a bit of stepping about.





Come on out next time! Keep an eye on the Facebook page for the session as well as Lochrann’s page.

Alright, I’ve procrastinated long enough. Here are the pictures from the last Lochrann’s gathering.

We got kicked outside due to a stupid football game but the weather was on the cool side, we were in the shade and we ended up with more room than normal so it was a win-win situation.





We had seven musicians and enough dancers for a full set along with the requisite beers. It was a good dance afternoon.

Lochrann’s June 22, 2008

It was another good session at Lochrann’s. Not too many of the CRG made it out but we did have me and Susan, Pam, Brandy and Billye so at least we had a half sets worth for a few set dances.

A bunch of people associated with the Shandon school made it out as well which helped to fill the far end of the pub with people twirling and leaping about.

We started off with a few set figures and then moved on the Walls of Limerick.

A few more set figures and Susan and I got up to teach the kids and a few adults the Waves of Tory. It was a bit of a disaster but fun just the same.

We also managed to drag a few of the Shandon adults through part of the Galway Half Set.

There was a bit of stepping about as well

while Bob and David played through the afternoon.
