MISSION:

Our mission is to celebrate and preserve our regions’ musical heritage in the only way it can be done: playing the tunes and passing them on from musician to musician. East Tennessee has rich roots in Irish and Scottish music, and they merged here with other influences and evolved into bluegrass and old time Appalachian genres. At Boyd’s Jig and Reel we celebrate our musical past, our present, and future.  Come on down, bring your fiddle or instrument of your choice and join in. If you forget your instrument, there are plenty tuned up and ready to play from pianos to a double bass to a harp, and of course plenty of mandolins and fiddles. Don’t play? Not to worry.  We have beer and food for the spectators!

ABOUT THE PUB:

Whether it be in the highlands of Scotland, the green plains of Ireland, or the rolling mountains of Appalachia, music and drink have always brought people together. Not much for big name celebrity bands, these cultures did, however, produce their fair share of  musicians and singers. Each had received the songs of their heritage and could play them for hours with great skill entertaining and inspiring the locals and travellers. Their place of congregation was a public house, or pub, where any and all could come have a drink and listen in on the session. Boyd’s Jig & Reel in the Old City of Knoxville is such a place for all those who seek cold drink, warm conversation, and lively music.

This pub belongs to all players and listeners of this traditional art. So, come and enjoy the heritage of our cultures as we share and preserve it through drink and music.

WHAT IS A PUB SESSION?

“A pub session (seisúin in Irish Gaelic) refers to playing music and/or singing in the relaxed social setting of a local pub, in which the music-making is intermingled with the consumption of ale, stout, and beer and conversation. Performers sing and play traditional songs and tunes from the Irish, English and Scottish traditions, using instruments such as the fiddle, accordion, concertina, flute, tin whistle, uilleann pipes, tenor banjo, guitar, and bodhrán.” – Wikipedia
