Staten Island Arts invites you to raise your fiddles and tap your feet to the rousing rhythms of traditional Irish music. The seisiúns, led by founders and local favorites Linda Hickman, Douglas Barr, and Bob Wright, offer musicians and music lovers an afternoon of music and shared camaraderie onstage and off. Seisiúns take place on the first Sunday of each month and specialize in the genres and traditions of Ireland’s west coast, most specifically east Galway and Clare.
The Staten Island Seisiún brings together Staten Island’s own with great practitioners of traditional Irish music from the other boroughs and New Jersey in a celebration and sharing of musical traditions and talents. Unlike an ordinary concert of live music at a bar, the seisiún is dedicated to both playing and practice. The seisiún is open to musicians of all levels and ages and all are invited to bring their own instruments and join in to expand repertoire and technique. Music lovers are welcome to come and listen, dance, and enjoy this long-standing tradition.
