Entertainment at JJ’s

This week at JJ’s, Thursday night is Folk Club night with Mike Banahan and Brendan Emmett.    

  This wonderful night of music has been running since last spring and has played host to performances from some very talented musicians and singers.

  Mike says “We’ve had a great time every Thursday evening, it’s a song-filled session and it’s a wonderful place to be midweek.”

  The Folk Club is going down well with audiences so get down to JJ’s tonight (Thursday, 17th December) and every Thursday and listen to top class music from local artists right on your doorstep.

  Also this week, Strange Brew will perform in JJ’s on Saturday night (19th December) while Patricia Lane and Anthony McDermott will be in the middle bar from 6 pm on Sunday evening (20th December).
