The Elderberries will host the long-running session of traditional Irish music at Berkeley’s Starry Plough.
Thanks to Shay Black for inviting us to host these 5th-Sunday gatherings.
3101 Shattuck Avenue (at Prince Street) in Berkeley. A few blocks from Ashby BART.
Sunday nights at The Starry Plough are a rare, wonderful, old-world scene with great food, drink, & energy — and traditional Irish tunes and songs. On the first Sunday of each month, hear excellent music-craft in tune sessions led by fine local musicians.
Mondays nights are special too, with traditional Irish dance. John Slaymaker teaches and leads beginning-to-advanced dancers, while Richard Page leads live music onstage.
The sketches below are from a recent session. Thanks to animator Nikita Taranduke for sharing! See more of his amazing work at:
