IRISH NIGHT IS BACK! Featuring Vacationland Ceili Band

Wednesday - August, 04 @ 7:30pm

IRISH NIGHT KICKS OFF at 7:30 PM for the concert & is followed by a traditional Irish Session, starting around 9! Come to enjoy the music & a pint of Guinness for $4!

The Vacation Ceili Band is a high-powered, fast-moving local Portland traditional Irish Music band featuring:  Tom Rota (uilleann pipes), Alden, Robinson (fiddle) Will Woodson (flute, piccolo) & Miles Isacke (banjo/guitar).
VLCB was formed from the core group at the (former but hopefully retuning someday) O'Reilly's Cure Mondaynight session in Scarborough several years ago. This was the first act cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They will be performing something very similar to the set that was originally planned for that night.  Fun times and good tunes to welcome you all back to this much-loved music series in Portland's most intimate music venue!
You can check out their live-streamed concert from last year here:
