That's The Burren, Tommy and Louise's place in Somerville at the Davis Sq. Red Line stop.
There's tunes there or at the McCarthys' other pub, The Skellig, in Waltham (about 10 easy miles from Boston proper) nearly every night.
There's also Larry and Mike Reynold's big sesh on Monday nights at the Greenbriar Pub in Brighton.
A phonecall to any of the above is recommended, given the New England weather and the March schedules (St. Patrick's day parties, basketball games, what have you).
There are other sessions as well in town on any given night/afternoon. Boston is still a hotbed, was long before Riverdance and The Tiger, and still is. Mention my name for a free drink.
Who knows, it might work. Stranger things have happened. --P.g. M.
