The place for trad

Jalopy in Carroll Gardens is soon to be where it's at to hear some traditional Irish music in Brooklyn.

Starting July 31, a new concert series kicks off at the venue called Irish Nights Live.

According to its founder, Mike Considine, this inaugural concert is "aimed towards an audience who appreciate great traditional, and traditionally inspired music but do not always want to be in a bar/pub environment to experience it. The Jalopy space and stage are suited to acoustic music and performance and we hope to create a fun atmosphere where musicians who are dedicated to their music can perform in a relaxed and enjoyable way."

First up on the stage is Considine, a London Irish bouzouki and strings player, as well as Ivan Goff on pipes, flute & whistle, Grainne Murphy on fiddle and Sarah Jessop on vocals.

To stay up-to-date on Irish Nights Live, as well as news on the musicians, add to your blogroll. Jalopy is located at 315 Columbia St.

Another place for Irish music in the borough is Ceol in Cobble Hill (191 Smith St.). Head down to the pub on Sundays and Wednesdays and you can find a session in action to enjoy a Guinness to, or join in yourself.

Do you have a favorite spot in Brooklyn to hear some trad?
