A happy-go-lucky hootenanny

SESSIONS AMERICANA are a Boston-based rock band, or possibly a folk band, it's hard to put these guys into any kind of box.

This collective of talented individuals craft a musical experience unlike any other. They sometimes perform originals and other times they reach into their bag of tricks and play timeless covers with a distinct twist.

Their musical ability becomes ever so apparent as an assortment of instruments gets passed around from person to person in a happy-go-lucky, anything-could-happen, type of festival atmosphere.

On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlour guitar, a mandocello made by a college roommate-turned-luthier, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack's bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments make them a must-see, must-hear show.

Sessions Americana are playing two shows at Monroe's Live, this evening and tomorrow, so audiences won't miss out.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets are €15/€13.50 online at www.monroes.ie
