  • Our Final Concert in the Pub for 2015 is Saturday October 24th featuring Vulcan Eejits!!
    The Vulcan Eejits are a trio of artists that also perform in other Irish/Celtic Bands.  The trio are friends that have played together and separately in various ensembles for many years.  The Eejits play regularly at venues and festivals in AL and MS and continue to expand to other states and include Jil Chambless, Kevin Nicholson, and Dan Vogt.  Jil provides vocals and flute/whistles and has been a prominent figure on the Alabama Celtic music scene since the late 1980s.  She still performs with various Celtic music groups around the country and abroad, including Henri's Notions (which was recently featured on Alabama Public Television), the Ed Miller Trio, and others.  She is an incredibly talented player and you can find out more at  Kevin provides fiddle and has been a prominent figure for years starting in the 1990s with the Irish band Red Hill and currently plays with Irish Pub band Jasper Coal (  Dan provides guitar and vocals and is relatively new to the playing of Celtic music having played rock music for years, but has found his passion with Celtic music.

    This year alone, Jil has performed at Festivals and Concerts throughout the US as well as Canada and Scotland!  These are incredibly talented musicians that we are honored to finish out the Concerts in the Pub for 2015!

She was a wonderful lady and our hearts and thoughts are with her family and friends.
