Jimmy Fallon returns to Upstate NY pub for St. Patrick’s Day performance (video)

Fairport, NY – Live from upstate New York, it’s Saint Paddy’s Day!

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is back at Mulconry’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in Fairport, near Rochester, for a surprise St. Patrick’s Day performance Friday night. Video provided by Kara Lynch shows Fallon energetically singing a cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” with The Galtee Mountain Boys.

“There’s nothing better than playing in a GREAT Irish pub on St. Patrick’s Day!” wrote an Irish group from Rochester on Facebook. “Thank you Damien for always coming back and playing and thanks to Jimmy Fallon for putting everyone together and coming to sing a bunch of tunes with us!!”

Fallon is a longtime friend of Fairport resident Damien Malconry, who owns Malconry. They reportedly met over 20 years ago when Malconry moved from Ireland to New York and worked as a bartender at The Gaf West, one of Fallon’s favorite bars.

WHEC reports that Fallon also performed Friday at the nearby Iron Smoke Distillery from 1916, a local Celtic punk band, and Tommy Brunette, a Rochester musician who co-owns the distillery.

“It was a St. Patrick’s Day we will never forget!” 1916 posted on Facebook. “Not only did we put on an epic show for our friends at the Iron Smoke Distillery, but after that, our buddy Jimmy Fallon joined us for a little jam session!”

Fallon previously visited Fairport in 2018 to help Irish pub Mulconry’s celebrate its 10th anniversary by playing a guest bartender.

The former Saturday Night Live star also made a surprise appearance at the Iron Smoke Distillery in 2021, playing acoustic guitars with Brunette and playing Van Morrison’s “Gloria”, Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and even “Happy Birthday” for one of the bartenders.

“He’s a really talented guy,” Brunette told Democrat & Chronicle magazine in 2021. “We had so much fun.”

Fallon, who was a cast member on SNL from 1998 to 2004, has hosted The Tonight Show since 2014. He grew up in Saugerties and often yells about his upstate New York roots on TV, cheering on Syracuse basketball and referring to locales. like Oneonta in night parodies. Fallon is also known for his musical talents, frequently performing songs with The Roots and celebrities, and is reportedly working on a new Christmas album.
