Cologne's ONLY Live Irish Music Sessions, every 2 weeks, Monday's at 8pm at Barney Vallely's Irish 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 (and a few of those Irish pub classic sing-alongs to end the night.)

The next session is Monday the 10th June 2024.

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 Barney's has the finest Guinness in the city!)

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 (@GarethHoustonFlute) or on my Facebook page (@GarethHoustonFlute)

All the sessions take place at in the beautiful Cologne Old town at Barney Vallely's Irish Pub, 
Kleine Budengasse 7-11, 50667 Köln
