Kitchenrackets @ Celtic Colours 2014
KitchenRackets Jam Sessions
at Bras d'or Lakes Inn
During 4 nights when the Celtic Colours concerts are in close range to St. Peter's, we invite players and listeners to join us for an authentic acoustic jam session. Sessions begin with a short performance by a local player who will then kick off the jam. Free for participating players. Modest admission fee for listeners goes to support our youth music programs. Sorry, no minors due to liquor license regulations.
Sessions will begin about 10:15 nightly, or a bit later to enable people to get here after the local concert.

Tuesday, Oct. 14 after the concert in Riverdale/Lower River Inhabitants
