Hey, Catherine.
Hope you enjoy the trip.
There's a ton of sessions listed on www.thesession.org .  Just plug in the area/town you're looking for.  In terms of the usual stuff here in NY, there's the Tuesday night Dempsey's session open session (2nd Ave between 3rd and 4th streets, from 8pm on) and the Thursday night session at Paddy Reilly's pub on 2nd avenue between 28th and 29th (10pm on).  There MAY also be a session on St. Pat's at the Irish Center in Queens but I think that's still being worked out logistically.  There's more listed on www.thesession.org . I'd suggest reaching out to whoever's listed as the contact person for any other sessions you see posted on there for the time you're going to be here.  With so many people running around doing paid gigs that week plus so many bands and such in town, some of the usual sessions may get moved around.
 
Best wishes,
TJ

Announcing a new Meetup for The Irish in New York Meetup Group!

What: Songs for Haiti - Sunnyside, Queens

When: Thursday, January 28,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
The Diving Bell
45-15 Queens Blvd
Sunnyside, NY 11104

Haiti will need our help for some time to come so we are participating in a benefit concert connected to the local Irish music community here. Please join us on this night as an all-star cast of mostly Irish musicians performs Songs for Haiti at the www.divingbellnyc.com/home.html Diving Bell in Sunnyside, Queens. This will be a joint Meetup with the www.meetup.com/nycelticmusicmeetup-com NY Celtic Music group.

The concert will feature local Irish singer-songwriters, http://www.michaelbrunnock.com/ Michael Brunnock (Meath) and http://www.niallconnolly.com Niall Connolly (Cork), along with American folk singer http://www.joewhyte.com/home Joe Whyte and the Irish singer-songwriter http://roesymusic.net/ Roesy (Offaly), who's in the midst of a month-long tour of New York.

There will be a collection box in the bar and the suggested donation is $10 with all proceeds to benefit http://www.goal.ie GOAL Ireland, an international humanitarian agency dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poorest of the poor. GOAL was in Haiti long before the earthquake and is one of the key agencies involved in the current relief mission. In addition to the cash donations, the bar will donate to GOAL 50% of the cost of every drink sold.

The concert starts at 8, we'll meet at the Diving Bell starting at 7. We'll let you know about a pre-Meetup. There is no kitchen at the Diving Bell, but you can bring food or order in.

Please join us for this one. It'll be a night of quality folk and indie music with an Irish accent and the need remains as great as ever. You can sign up here, at the NY Celtic Music Meetup's site, or both, we'll figure it out.
