The Piper's Rambles

My thoughts on all things Irish Music in Chicago and beyond

The Killgubbin All-Stars at Seaman Violins

We had such a great night playing in the listening room at Seaman Violins in Skokie for a very interested and appreciative crowd! Sometimes I have to blink my eyes a bit to remind myself to stay focused while I’m playing. It’s easy to get lost in the moment and enjoy what everyone around you is playing … You have to remember what you’re supposed to be doing too!

Celtic Halloween @ Mrs. Murphy’s Bistro with the Kilgubbin All stars!

Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain. It celebrated the beginning of the dark half of the year, a time when the boundary between our world & the Otherworld thinned. It was celebrated with fires, feasting, & drinking. We’ll be celebrating Saturday October 30th with live Celtic music from the Kilgubbin Irish Music All Stars, a roaring fireplace, plenty of feasting & spirits! Mrs. Murphy’s is located in a remodeled 1920’s
