Murphy Roche

Founded in 1997, the Murphy Roche Irish Music Club (Burr Ridge, Illinois) is a non-profit organization for people of all ages and musical skill levels who perform, want to learn, or just enjoy Irish traditional music. The club is affiliated with the international organization of Irish Musicians, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (pronounced "kol-tus kyol- tori air-in")

Members do not need to be Irish. We draw from a broad range of ethnicities, including Polish, Native American, Dutch, Brazilian, and, of course, Irish. We invite you to join our club and join in our activities. Our weekly sessions offer a lot to many. Of course, they're an opportunity for musicians to gather and play traditional music. But they're much more. Club members socialize there, others enjoy "lift" from the music, new friendships form, and some are inspired to start performing Irish music and even join the club. Sessions are from an Irish music tradition that has touched many lives over the centuries. If you've never been to a session, or if it's been a while, we hope you'll try a Murphy Roche session soon. Newcomers, regulars, families and friends are always warmly welcomed.
