Utica pub hosts traditional Irish music session

Utica pub hosts traditional Irish music session - Utica, NY - The Observer-Dispatch, Utica, New York: "The sounds of the fiddle, bouzouki, flute and uilleann pipes mingled with the flavors of barley, hops and wheat Tuesday night to create the foundation for a traditional Irish music session at the Nail Creek Pub & Brewery.

Fifteen musicians from everywhere from Rome to St. Johnsville convened around tables in the middle of the Irish-inspired pub with one thing in mind: the preservation of their Irish traditions.

Around them, about 50 pub-goers of all ages formed small pockets, watching intently as the musicians moved their fingers and hands around their instruments, or bobbing their heads to the beats of the jig-like tunes. "
