ICC Digital is delighted to announce that every Friday from September 11th we will be bringing you “The ICC Seisiúns” a series of concerts recently recorded at the ICC and starring many of London’s great Irish musicians and artists.
The purpose of this production is to shine a spotlight on London’s Irish musicians, who over the past 25 years have played at the ICC and have helped to make it ‘The Home of Irish Culture’. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, we have been profoundly mindful that so many of our local musicians have lost their livelihoods – and so as a way of reaching out to them, thanks to The Embassy of Ireland, GB and Ireland’s Department for Foreign Affairs, we were able to invite them to participate in this Covid-secure production.
Kicking off ‘The ICC Seisiúns 2020’ will be three exceptional musicians who so many of you who come to our free and fabulous Friday night Irish music sessions will know and love so well! So here we bring you a short preview from a concert, directed by Sé Merry Doyle and starring the amazing guitarist and bodhran player Tad Sargent, the brilliant fiddle player Michael Sweeney and the legendary, acclaimed banjo player Mick O’ Connor, all of whom are the great stalwarts of our Friday Night Sessions! Enjoy this.. and see their full concert, coming soon on Friday September 11th.
