We've got a nice monthly session in Niles, Ohio, USA. Third Sunday of every month at Quinlan's Irish Pub - the nicest pub for many, many miles. They actually open up especially for us at 5 PM (they're usually closed Sundays) and several of us arrive then for pub food, beer and conversation. Tunes start at 6 PM, end about 8 PM or a bit later.
We typically get eight to 15 players, plus some listeners. We're friendly to beginners, and usually take turns picking tunes, so everyone gets to play at least one that they know! Our youngest is a fiddler who's maybe 11, and I won't embarrass our oldest grandfather by trying to guess his age.
Quinlan's is at 5154 Youngstown-Warren Rd., Niles, Ohio, 44446. Their phone is 330-349-4500
for more information. Welcome!
