Cologne`s only Irish Traditional Music Sessions


Cologne's ONLY Live Irish Music Sessions, every 2 weeks, Monday's at 8pm at the Black Sheep Pub!
These sessions are quickly becoming one of the best live music nights in the city, with great musicians, a lovely atmosphere and excellent drinks.

I launched these sessions in June 2022 as part of my role as Irish Language and Cultural Officer with the Cologne Celtics GAA, and I've been blown away by how they've grown!

The next session is Monday the 6th February 2023, 8pm.

They take place every 2 weeks, on Monday evenings at 8pm. They're quickly becoming a cornerstone of Irish/Celtic culture here in Cologne, with a lovely community and atmosphere at each session. Even if you don't play, come along and watch, they're totally free (and there's some great drink offers in the pub too!)

All musicians are welcome, including those who have little to no experience in Irish Trad Music. We have sheet music available if you prefer, we also welcome all instruments (including those not often found in Irish Sessions.) If you even fancy just coming along to play one or two tunes and get a feel for it, that's also great! 

Get in touch with me for more details, or to get added to our musicians WhatsApp group!

You´ll find the latest session date here or on my Instagram page (@garethhouston_flute) or on my Facebook page (@GarethHoustonFlute)

All the sessions take place at The Black Sheep Pub, Kyffäuserstrasse 25, 50674, Köln (just off Barbarossaplatz).

And if you don't play but have always wanted to learn, I now offer Irish Music Lessons on flute and tin whistle in Cologne! Click below to find out more, and you could be playing in the sessions in no time!
