The Napper Tandies featuring Randy Billings, Matt Smith and Chris Brinn will sing and playing traditional Irish songs and ballads, plus sea chanteys and the odd Cornish song, Saturday, Jan. 16 beginning 7:30 p.m. at Billy’s Tavern, behind the business block.

Portland’s most popular Irish band promises to get people up and dancing. Its Midcoast component, Waldo County’s Chris Brinn, has performed this music for 25 years and is responsible for organizing the music end of last year’s Maine Celebration in Belfast. Brinn appears at Billy’s as part of The Occasionals jam.

There is a $3 cover charge. For more information, call 354-1177. Billy’s Tavern is located at 1 Starr St.
