John Patrick Griffin and CIFD presents an afternoon of Irish music and culture throughout the Roundhouse, on the terrace, in Torquils Bar and the Studio Theatre. Step onto the terrace to be wrapped up in the weaving and earthy sounds of Jaquelyn Hyne & Friends, followed by Orlaith and the Lemons’ traditional Irish music sessions. Tad Sargent leads a beginners Bodhran workshop, a drum that is said to soothe the inner soul with its ancient trance- like beat. Camden favourites The Long Notes end the daytime activities.
Paint your own Blarney stone, listen in wonder to the Irish storyteller’s magical tales of legend, and hunt for gold at the end of the rainbow. Explore a selection of stalls whilst feasting on homemade Irish stew. Whet your cultural appetite with a day of visual and performance art.
