The Irish Society of North Alabama on WAAY 31:
  • Our next Concert in the Pub is Saturday June 6th featuring Black Market Haggis!!
    Black Market Haggis is a trio comprised of Mike Clem, Andy Kruspe, and Garrett Smith who have been playing Celtic music together in one form or another since 2010. During this time, they kept a running tab of cool band names and even better album names. When it came time to form a trio, "Black Market Haggis" became the clear choice for a band name. So they did what every new band should do when s...tarting out- they searched their band name on the internet to see if it had already been taken. Predictably, no band has ever used that moniker. However, they did find that there is a demand for such a product since the USDA will not allow real haggis in the United States.
    For those who have enjoyed Marc Gunn's concerts in the pub -- Black Market Haggis made Marc's list of Best Celtic Folk Music bands!
    Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at:

  • It is with very sad news that we let everyone know that our fellow ISNA member and Huntsville's very own Seanachie ("Storyteller") past away on July 13th. She volunteered throughout Huntsville and supported many events to include speaking at our October 2011 meeting by telling many great stories. She was a wonderful lady and our hearts and thoughts are with her family and friends.
