Sadly Banjo Jims in NYC has closed, but luckily the Battlefield Band ‘Line-up’ album release party has found a great new venue at the Swift Hibernian Lounge Commonly known as Swift’s, it’s located at 34 E. 4th Street between Lafayette and the Bowery (subway stations nearby are: Astor place, Bleecker, and 8th St). It’s a great bar with superb bar staff, a fine selection of beers and excellent food available.
Please note the party is now being held on Tuesday 16th. Battlefield Band will be playing between 7.30-9pm, so they look forward to welcoming you around 7pm to have a drink before the show. There’s also a great Irish music session afterwards so no doubt the band will get involved in that and the crack will carry on…
It’s a free show and it’s open to all, so see you there:
come down early and get the pints in!
“What the internationally renowned Irish band, the Chieftains, has done for traditional Irish music, Battlefield Band is doing for the music of Scotland â€¦”
