Traditional Irish Music in NYC

The CUNY Institute for Irish-American Studies is proud to host the "Center for Traditional Irish-American Music." Dr. Scott Spencer and Traditional Irish-American Musician in Residence John Redmond have organized concerts and lectures with a number of traditional Irish-American musicians. In 2009, they hosted six public interviews/performances as a pilot project to document the face of Irish-American traditional music in New York City and in 2010, John Redmond organized an Irish music and dance session with Niall O'Leary at our annual dinner and a presentation on Irish and Yiddish music at Lehman College (see events listing). John Redmond hosts a traditional session at An Béal Bocht Café at 4PM on Sundays each week. He also frequently joins the session at O'Neill's in Manhattan. Scott Spencer regularly performs with the Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra.
