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. Due to Covid and other circumstances, we are searching for a new venue. On February 2nd, we'll be playing at the Springhill Suites, downtown at 236 Main Street. Please join us for our return!

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.
