the rats

Party like it's 1799

We play traditional like that's a good thing!

Welcome to the secret lair of the Green River Rats, aka Grrrats

We have done went and played our last show at the Baked Tomato, 4358 N Elston in Chicago

but some of us can be found at the Saturday (4-6 pm) session at Lizards Liquid Lounge, Irving Park and Albany

The Green River Rats are

proud, yet humble, purveyors of traditional Irishish music and include

Jaime Haas (banjo, accordion, bouzouki, vocals), Jim Szmurlo, (fiddle, guitar, vocals) Cam Flint, (bodhran)

Jim Curran, (penny whistle), Karen Schachtschneider (fiddle) and Kevin Riordan, (mandola, attempted vocals)

Their zodiac signs are a closely guarded secret
