A ‘SUPERGROUP’ of Irish and British musicians will lead the virtual St Patrick’s celebrations being hosted by the Irish Embassy in London on March 17.
The event, which is open to all and free to attend, takes place at 1.15pm tomorrow, hosted by the Irish Ambassador to Britain, Adrian O’Neill.
Featuring messages from the Ambassador as well as Taoiseach Micheál Martin, entertainment will include the award-winning fiddle player Aoife Ní Bhriain leading a performance by a group of traditional musicians, which was recorded live at the Embassy.
Confirming their plans, an Irish Embassy spokesperson said: “At this time of year, the Irish Embassy would usually be preparing to welcome members of the Irish community and friends of Ireland in Great Britain to the Embassy throughout St Patrick’s week.
“This year we are planning a very different kind of celebration, and we hope you can join us for an exciting virtual St. Patrick’s Day event at 1.15pm on Wednesday 17th March.”
They added: “Along with messages from an Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Ambassador Adrian O’Neill, award-winning fiddle player Aoife Ní Bhriain will lead a ‘supergroup’ of Irish and British musicians in a selection of traditional Irish tunes, recorded live at the Embassy."
“We hope you can all don your green and join us virtually at lunchtime on St. Patrick's Day to mark the day.”
