Put down your guitar and pick up that bouzouki! Irish folk music has joined the monthly lineup at Jalopy.

This is no “Riverdance,” it’s the real thing — actual Irishmen and -women singing in the classic “Sean-Nos”-style and playing the traditional ouilleann pipes and flutes.

Jalopy is usually the place for American folk — bluegrass, jazz, country or blues. But owner Lynette Wiley said that their vision is “world traditional, not just American traditional.”

Wiley has been thinking of featuring more Irish music for a while, so it was felicitous that Irish musician Mike Considine (pictured) moved down the block about a year ago.

Before long, Considine and the Wileys were planning monthly concerts. The first one is this Friday, July 31 — and they’re already as popular as Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day.

“We’re booked into 2010!” said Wiley.

“Irish Night” at Jalopy [315 Columbia St. between Woodhull and Rapeleye streets in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, (718) 395-3214], Friday, July 31, 9 pm. Tickets, $10.
