Event Details

The Sunflower continues with the latest in its weekly singing sessions. The session welcomes performers from the floor – accompanied or unaccompanied – as well as featuring a special guest. This week’s guest is Kevin Elam.

Based in Washington DC, Kevin Elam is a multi-instrumentalist and 2019 All-Ireland Champion in Men’s Singing. Although he boasts a strong background in classical piano and a degree in Jazz studies, Kevin is rooted in Irish traditional music. In addition to playing the tin whistle, guitar, mandolin and banjo, Kevin has also honed his skills as a singer and interpreter of Irish traditional song, cultivating a significant repertoire of ballads. His success at the 2019 Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, held in Drogheda made him the second American winner in the history of the competition.

Admission at the door is £5.
