The nÓg is Closing…

I was just informed of some sad news by old band mate and fiddler extraordinaire Damon Leibert. Evidently the Tír na nÓg in Sommerville, MA is closing at the end of this month.


Many a session I played in that alley-sized-smokey-joint back in the 90’s. I seem to recall one gig where Damon jumped up on the bar with his fiddle, wirelessly hooked into the PA and lit the place up. Good times.

As a last hurrah the nÓg is bringing back the Johnny Come Latelies, a house favorite featuring Damon’s fiddle playing, for a couple of shows (3-8-07 & 3-15-07). I’m sure it will be a fitting farewell.
