Funny moment musician falls into whiskey barrel during Irish music jam in Massachusetts

This is the hilarious moment a musician fell into a whiskey barrel during an Irish music session at a bar in Massachusetts.

CCTV footage captured at the Cottage Bar in Weymouth city shows US-based Scotsman James Lever playing the bodhran - a type of Irish drum - along with other musicians when in the excitement he steps onto a barrel.

Lever promptly falls through the barrel - to the amusement of his bandmates.

''We were having our staff party and we had our regular musicians come to play. Jimmy decided to be a good idea to get up on the whiskey barrel while playing the bodhran,'' the owner of the bar told Newsflare.

The funny incident occurred on February 4.
