Open Session

2018 Iowa Irish Fest

Iowa Irish Fest Open Session

This session began at the Iowa Irish Fest in 2017 as a test, and about a dozen brave souls showed up and made it happen.  This year we’re hoping to attract more people and have a great time.

The Fest has also assured us that there will be lights near us this time, so if you need music (or just like to see your instrument) thank the Family Tent organizers.

Date: Friday, August 3, 2018
Time: 8:30 pm – whenever
Location: Family Area Tent

Requirements: All players of all levels are welcome as long as you play a traditional Irish instrument (i.e., fiddle, flute, whistle, banjo, guitar, bodhran, harp, mandolin…)

No amplification — this is a traditional acoustic session.

If you plan to attend, we’d appreciate a quick note (use the form to the right) to let us know so we have an idea how many will attend!
