About the band:
Since 2011, Irish musicians have been gathering on Main Street in Montpelier to play traditional Irish music, first at Bagitos, and later at Rabble Rouser. Over time, that gathering has evolved into a traditional session renowned across North America and Ireland, and it has attracted such luminaries as singer Norman Kennedy, Liz Carroll, Seamus Connolly, Michael Tubridy of the Chieftains, the band Full Set, Alasdair Fraser, Ivan Goff, Brian McNamara, Mike McHale, and many others.
Just before the pandemic, Scottish singer Norman Kennedy and the musicians in Irish Session on Main began work on a recording to document Montpelier’s vibrant Irish music scene. Recently the project has been taken up again, and their album, “The Wild Geese”, is slated for completion sometime this year.
