Traditional Irish Session

Walk into our West Lafayette pub on a Thursday evening, and you'll find a group of local musicians enjoying a few pints and playing in a session, or seisiún, while enjoying the craic. A session is a great opportunity to kick back, relax, and enjoy an evening of great spontaneous Irish music! If you're a competent musician with a knowledge of Irish music, stop by for the next one and pull up a stool!

Laughing Jack

We're very excited to be hosting a new band, Laughing Jack!  Composed of former members of Ennis Clare and Hogeye Navvy, this group specializes in pirate songs, traditional Irish tunes, and pub tunes.  It's going to be a great night!

Emily Ann Thompson

Celtic fiddler, stepdancer, and entertainer Emily Ann Thompson and her husband, Kelly, return to Nine Irish Brothers in Lafayette for a fun evening of traditional Irish music. Drawing from a wide variety of world music styles, Emily Ann plays traditional Irish, Scottish, and Canadian fiddle tunes in a fresh and original style. She also sings and adds Irish dance and foot percussion. Kelly accompanies Emily on guitar, percussion, and vocals.

The Whiskey Runners

Join us for a raucous way to herald the weekend!  Shawn Fitzpatrick and Brian McClure, better known as the Whiskey Runners, stop in for a great evening of traditional Irish music and a few fun covers along the way.  A talented duo (incidentally both Purdue grads--BOILER UP), Shawn and Brian combine fantastic vocals, acoustic guitar, and blazing fiddle for a great result. 

The Mighty McGuiggans!

Everybody’s Irish--at least some of the time! The Mighty McGuiggans combine high-energy Irish fun with a wide variety of pub songs, originals, sea shanties, and sing-a-longs. It's a rowdy time with McGuiggans originals, plus tunes from the likes of Flogging Molly, Great Big Sea, the Pogues, the Dubliners, Dropkick Murphys, sweet harmonies, and a wee drop of humor. There's also some smoking action on fiddle, mandolin, accordion, and tin whistle playing the best jigs and reels from Ireland and Scotland.
