Come experience the hospitality of the legendary “Southside Irish.” Quigley’s offers Guinness & Harp on tap, as well as an extensive collection of craft beers and classic Celtic fare.
This is a required "stop on the tour" of the history of Chicago Irish music; local legend has it that the lyrics to the song “Southside Irish” were written on a napkin by Terry McEldowney & Tom Walsh at this location at 3:00am on St. Patrick’s Day, 1984. Come check out the Southside, have a friendly pint, and listen to the music of Honeysuckle Road. Free Parking!
Music all around the world has become beautifully entwined. One is as likely to find the Sabar (a Senegalese drum) in Donegal, Dakar, or Dalton, GA; or the Feadóg (an Irish tin whistle) in Madrid, County Mayo, or Memphis, TN. Guitars and voices are universal.
This is the musical voyage that has brought Honeysuckle Road together. With backgrounds encompassing, American music from Classical, Country/Bluegrass, and Heavy Metal to Jazz, Rock & Roll, and Zydeco, our passion is to bring these disparate elements together in a way that honors the traditional while pushing the boundaries of the conventional.
This allows us to play world music with a distinctive American style, and Americana music that incorporates the best of the world styles; our favorite is Celtic.
We invite you on this joyous musical journey. Join us on the road, Fellow Travelers!
Honeysuckle Road is: Bert Curtis - Guitar, Arlene Rojewski Stern - Vocals,
Bob Stern - Bass, Baritone Guitar & Vocals, Alpha Stewart - Percussion & Vocals.
