Pete Lalor is appearing at the Celtic Club hotel Celtic@Metropolitan on the corner on Courtney and Blackwood streets, North Melbourne on Friday 6 July from 6.30pm.
The stage name Pete Lalor is from the Irish Australian leader of the Eureka Rebellion.
Pete Lalor is a Melbourne based Irish Australian singer-songwriter. The music genre is generally within folk and rock and usually with an underlying theme of social issues, including his own composition on Eureka. Pete is in the process of recording his debut EP and will release more news on this soon.
His band name, The Pikemen is chosen in memory of the front line defence of the Eureka Rebellion. To honour the memory of all those who have stood up against tyranny and oppression, of government ruling for the rich and pillaging the people. The Pikemen are also an enduring symbol of the 1798 rebellion in Wexford, Ireland. The password for action in the Eureka Rebellion was Vinegar Hill which was the last major stand of the 1798 rebellion (the 220th Anniversary was on 21 June) and site of a massacre of thousands of non-combatant civilians.
This live music is free.
Happy hour is on from 4pm to 7pm.
Meals are available from 5pm.
And the Irish music session finishes at 6pm
