What better way to spend Thanksgiving Eve than rocking out with Shilelagh Law, the New York Irish rock band! In typical Shilelagh Law fashion, the night was filled with new and old songs, jigs, roaring laughter and Jameson. Good craic was definitionally had! Definition: Craic is a term for fun, entertainment and gossip that is predominantly used in Ireland.
Halfway through the show, the band got wind of a Shilelagh Law newcomer, so they made sure she felt right at home. Inviting the newbie up on stage and encouraging a round of Jameson shots before they continued with their set is standard in their book. With guitars, accordions and violins surrounding her, Shilelagh Law ensured that the newcomer would come back to future shows! By interpreting traditional Irish music through an urban filter, Shilelagh Law defines the Irish-American musical experience.
Shilelagh Law has been gaining local recognition as one of New York’s most popular traveling bar bands for years. On Thanksgiving Eve, the band ended the evening with a fan favorite, “Christmas in New York”, as the crowd sang, swayed and slurred along Shilelagh Law belted out the holiday tune. Perfectly fitting for the holiday weekend, “Christmas in New York” is undeniably universal, regardless of your location, and is a reminder of why we come together during the holidays, as family and friends and neighbors.
