Terry Weir…up from County Wakefield

Terrance WeirWe had a special treat on April 4, when Terry Weir joined us to fill in for the roving Peter Hale.

Terry helps us with some tunesAs he’s known to do, Terry brought a great voice and collection of songs and tunes, and his touch and tone on the mandolin, guitar, and fiddle were appreciated by all.

We get to his session at  Harrington’s Pub in Wakefield, MA when we can, and we all enjoy it when we connect ‘across the counties’ like this.

Saturday Nights…

Pete Heats Up the RhythmSpecial things can happen on Saturday nights  in McM’s Pub.  While we do have limited space at our table for musicians and singers – we make the best use of it, and we’ve been known to squeeze in a good group of players and singers – raising the roof a bit.

As Peter Hale has posted, we had an especially fun Saturday night session recently – and captured some sound clips.

Please drop in – to sing along – play some tunes – or just to listen a bit –  and help us make another great Saturday happen.

Fun night captured

dreamstime_8008677We got a special treat at McMenemy’s on Saturday night when a few friends stopped in to play with us, including Eamon Coyne, his son Thomas, Mike Jeanneau, Bill Zecker, Kevin Sheehan and Emery Hutchins. It was great craic — a fun night of music that, luckily, Dave was able to capture on his little recorder.

If you weren’t able to make it Saturday, you can hear a few samples that we’ve posted on our website’s music player…the first five tracks are from Saturday’s session.

Thursday Nights at McM’s

The tunes, songs, and fun are ongoing… every Thursday night at McMenemy’s in Portsmouth.  We have enjoyed a long stand there…from back in the days when it was McNotMcMenemy’s… and we like the way that Thursday nights usually shape up – a little quieter than Saturday’s  – but with an intimacy and fun-with-friends atmosphere that’s easy to like.

Please drop by, with some songs or tunes, or just to kick back and listen.McMenemy's

Thanks!

Well, it took a week to recover, but on behalf of the lads I want to say THANK YOU to all the friends that came out to see us play around the St. Patrick’s Day holiday this year. We had a blast with gigs at Kelley’s Row in Dover and a marathon session at McMenemy’s in Porstmouth. Thanks to Kelley’s and McM’s for having us, and thanks to you for coming out and supporting live music!

If you missed the festivities, check out some of the photos that Beth Therriault took of us during our Sunday show at Kelley’s Row. She’s a great photog that specializes in events and weddings – and she offered to capture a few shots of òran mór in action. Hey, she’s so talented she makes us look good.

And a special thanks to our friend, the lovely and talented Sue Young, who stepped up on Tuesday to cover for Dave at the noontime gig. She was great, and now we have the makings of a new super group — sú & mór!

Focus Boys, Focus

I'm not that much shorter than Dave, am I?
