Traditional Music and Song

Howth Singing Circle has again moved its annual Burns Nicht celebration online this year in light of the continuing public health crisis caused by Covid-19. As was the case last year, the Howth Singing Circle are co-ordinating their efforts with two renowned Edinburgh institutions – the Edinburgh Folk Club and The World’s Room singers’ club..

The event on Saturday January 22 will be run over Zoom from 8pm featuring a combination of live and pre-recorded performances. The concert will also be simultaneously streamed on the HSC’s Facebook page.

 

Among the performers already lined up for the event are: (from Ireland) Méabh Meir (pictured above), Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin, Francy Devine, John Kelly, Larry Egan and Mick Mullen; (from Scotland) Steve Byrne, George Duff, David Francis, Margaret Bennett and Billy Jolly, (and from both): An Corráiste (The Luck Penny: featuring Jaff Mac Seafraidh and Jackie Jeffries).

The concert will be followed on Sunday afternoon (January 23) by an open singing session from 3pm-6pm on Zoom – which is expected to feature contributions from Ireland and Scotland as well as three songs each from Niamh Parsons and Scott Gardiner.
