The Steampacket Sessions

Ballyhooley and friends in session,Friday, 2 December 2016, If you go to a big city anywhere in the world, you’ll find an Irish pub with a regular “session” of Irish music. South Coast folk band Ballyhooley is bringing the session to Eurobodalla – to the Steampacket Hotel in Nelligen to be precise. We’ve already run a trial out there and enjoyed ourselves immensely. But it would be much more fun with you there! Sessions are quite different from other gigs – much more relaxed for both musicians and patrons. The musicians just set themselves up around a table in a comfortable part of the pub. Everybody else does likewise. Unlike a concert, there’s no need to be silent or applaud after each bracket of tunes – in fact we expect you to chat quietly among yourselves, enjoying the ambience. Except perhaps if someone kicks off a song – then it’s traditional to listen quietly, join in if it’s a singalong and applaud at the end. And sessions are free! The Steampacket at Nelligen was a natural choice for us. It’s an old pub with history, and the owners are really welcoming. And easily found from any direction, just 10K up the Kings Highway from Batemans Bay. It also boasts the biggest wood-fired pizza oven we’ve ever seen. So big it needs two separate doors – one to tend the fire and one to tend the pizzas! The pizza menu is unique and imaginative, as you can see from the exotic ingredients and the quirky names. You’ll notice us stopping at some point to eat, so you should plan to do the same. You’ll find the pizza menu by following the link. So, mark this date in your diary and come out and join us for a great night of Irish music and song: Ballyhooley and friends in session, Friday, 2 December 2016, Steampacket Hotel, 963 Kings Highway Nelligen, From around 5:30pm. No cover charge.
