Irish & Folk Mondays @ Bellingham | Washington | United States

Every Monday Jan Peters hosts an open Irish music from session from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., followed by a concert that is always very fine, fun and often stunning. The concerts feature artists that range from local and regional purveyors of fine acoustic traditional and trad-based folk music to national and internationally renown luminaries.

The session is a part of an ancient culture of oral tradition of learning and sharing within a cross-generational community context.

The wintertime venue for Irish & Folk Mondays is currently The Honeymoon:

Now in my third season there, the Honeymoon provides a warm and cozy environ for intimate concerts and shows.

In the summertime we move out into the open air and fun of Boundary Bay Brewery’s lovely beer garden: https://www.bbaybrewery.com
