The Cabin Sessions, Dundrum: special edition, 3 Oct. 2019

BIB editor's note: This post, with Gerry's special announcement, supersedes the one that appeared on the BIB on 18 Sept.

On 9 September the BIB reported that the next in the Cabin Sessions series will be held on Thursday 26 September. It is now known that Uncle Tom's Cabin will close after 3 October, with no assurance about its future [see below]. In these circumstances Gerry Fitzpatrick, founder and organiser of the Cabin Sessions, announces:

Hey Y' All,

I am sorry to announce that Uncle Tom's Cabin has been sold and will close its doors on October 3rd - The end of an era! To mark the occasion and to celebrate nine years of the Cabin we are hosting a Cabin Sessions Special on October 3rd. Guests who have played over the years are invited to join us for the evening. We haven't finalised the format but essentially we will call up people randomly and ensure that everyone who wants to sing gets a chance to do so. We'll kick off at 9.30 and I hope you can join us to celebrate what has been I think a unique feature on the Dublin music scene!

To all our guests over the years we thank you for your contribution and participation. To all our supporters who come along regularly - you have been such a brilliant audience and without you the Cabin Sessions would not have been possible.

Best wishes and hope we see you on October 3rd!


The Sessions have been held for nine years on the last Thursday of every month at Uncle Tom's Cabin in Dundrum, south Dublin (not far from Dundrum Luas station, in the city direction). Shows run from 9.30 to 11.30 p.m. and admission is FREE. Don't miss these last two historic evenings!

Update 25 June 2020: Thanks to Colm O Syllivan for the news that Uncle Tom's Cabin, 'bar and restaurant trading since 1890', is now entering a new phase as the home of Community Coffee (also on Facebook), 'an exciting new outlet serving an array of gorgeous coffees'.
