Join us for a Sunday morning brunch with traditional Irish music.
Brunch menu anything off of our regular large menu.
Steve Stanislaw and John Beatty All acoustic tunes and songs. Instruments include tenor banjo, bouzouki, guitar, fiddle, whistle, low whistle, flute, bodhran. Both players sing (and Steve is really good!).
John Beatty plays guitar, bouzouki, flute, whistle, low whistle and bodhrán. He also sings lead and harmony vocals. John is a native of Ottawa, Canada. He came to the U.S. to complete his graduate work. Since then has played in several bands that achieved wide acclaim, notably “Wicky Sears,” a traditional Irish band featured at festivals, clubs and radio shows from North Carolina to New York where they played the legendary club, “Folk City.” When “Wicky Sears” disbanded, John played in “Beamish’s Goat” and “Crosáin” before moving to Austin, Texas. He then became a promoter for Irish bands while he continued his own performing career. Returning to Eastern PA in 2000, he joined up with Terry Kane as Kane & Beatty, and played many clubs and festivals including Musikfest and Celtic Classic. He plays as part of the Molly Maguires Ceilidh band with Steve Stanislaw, Mary Malone and Den Vykopal, and with Steve as half of the dynamic duo Steve and John.
