Open Traditional Irish Seisiún at Dempsey's with Caitlin Finley

Please join us at Dempsey's on this night as we welcome back young Irish-American fiddler Caitlin Finley to lead the Tuesday night open session at Dempsey's.

A Philadelphia native, Caitlin has studied traditional Irish fiddle with the legendary New York Sligo fiddler Brian Conway and his sister Rose Flanagan. Caitlin took up fiddle at the age of 8 after starting out as an Irish stepdancer. Though just 21, she's been active in Philadelphia traditional Irish music circles for much of the last decade. She's also a champion Irish tenor banjo player though fiddle remains her primary instrument. A senior physics major at Columbia, Caitlin has a been a regular at traditional Irish sessions in New York since starting school here three years ago.

So we'll have another chance to check out a rising young star of not only the New York but the East Coast fiddle scene. Check out this interview with Caitlin in

The Dempsey's session is a mix of advanced, intermediate and beginner-level session musicians, skillfully led by our own John Nevin. All musicians are invited to bring their instruments and join in with the session. Non-musicians are welcome as well to listen, watch and enjoy.

It's fair to say our presence has been missed at Dempsey's in recent weeks and months--dare I say years?--so we hope to see a big turnout on this night as we welcome back a talented young musician to the session. And we didn't have much of a turnout for Caitlin when she made her Dempsey's debut last September. And it's a new season and Six Months to St. Patrick's Day plus one day. So there's a lot of good reasons right there for you guys to turn out for this one.

See you there!
