Dempsey's Christmas Session and 15th Anniversary Party!

  • Dec 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Yes, it's that time of year again, time for the annual Dempsey's Christmas Session. And this year's Christmas session is extra special as it commemorates the 15th anniversary of New York's longest-running open traditional Irish session.

Champion button accordion player Martin O'Connell is the official guest host, but you can expect many of the top traditional Irish musicians from around the tri-state area to descend on Dempsey's on this night to celebrate the season and the session as Irish Christmas music complements the usual trad standards.

It will be a festive evening from start to finish with lots of goodies beyond what's on the regular menu there. Dessert items are welcome in case anyone wants to bring something. 

The Dempsey's Christmas session is always a good time and one of our largest turnouts of the year, so we hope you'll be able to join us for it.

    Sorry I can't make it

    Given the weather, I'm afraid I probably won't make it. It took me an hour just to get out of Brooklyn this am, and I think it's getting worse. If it improves, I may try. Hate to miss it.

    Can't wait! I'm going to pick up something at the bakery today. Is anyone going to get there early to have dinner?

    December 17, 2013

    • Dennis

      I'll be there by 6:30-7, would encourage everyone to get there early if you can, it's going to fill up fast. I'll probably see what the buffet's like before ordering food from the bar.

    Had to change r.s.v.p. However, if I can swing it, will try to pop in for a little while.

    Sorry I can't make it. It's one of the best parties in town. Have a great Christmas everyone.
