Irish Sessions

One of Fifth Reel's most enjoyable activities is acting as the core ensemble for Grand Junction's one and only Irish Session. We are thrilled to be hosted by Springhill Suites, 236 Main Street in downtown Grand Junction. We meet from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. Come join us for liquid refreshment and great music!

It is a tribute to the quality of our musicians that many travel from as far as Moab, Utah and New Castle, Colorado, just to have the opportunity to join friends in playing fine Celtic music.
