This is a welcoming Irish music session, that often boasts between 10 and 20 musicians (on a good night) playing fiddles, flutes, whistles, banjos, mandolins and other instruments. Shay Black hosts the session weekly and invites selected people to sing during the evening. A sliding scale applies, which usually means buying the band a drink ($3 - $5) when the "woolly hat" comes around. "Quiet" (meaning listen) when people sing is an Irish expectation, and is expected here too, but there is lots of time to laugh, socialize, drink and have fun when the session tunes are being played.
