Travel to Kings Place

Irish Hooley at Kings Place

Fundraising Event
Music / Wednesday, 28 June 2017 - 7:30pm / Hall One
£15.50 | £9.50*

A great gathering of some of the finest exponents of Irish music, song and dance.

This concert, in the beautiful surroundings of Kings Place, features The London Lasses and Chris O’Malley (‘One of the best bands on the scene today.’ Irish Music Magazine), CrossHarbour (‘A fine example of how traditional Irish music is still thriving in a modern way’ The Daily Telegraph), Le Chéile (‘the cult Irish band of 1970s London, producing some of the most memorable recordings of the time’ Folk Radio UK), Artisan Row (‘a fresh new force on the London Irish scene’ Irish Music Magazine) and The Trad Gathering (‘FANTASTIC – such great tunes that soared around the Royal Albert Hall.’ Lincoln Abbots, Chief Executive, Music for Youth).

This event is the third fundraiser for ‘Irish Music and Dance in London’ (IMDL) and towards the staging of the 19th Return to Camden Town Festival – which includes Noel Hill + Artisan Row on 27 Oct at Kings Place.


Internationally renowned six-piece band The London Lasses delivers a wealth of traditional material from all over Ireland, including songs in Irish and English, plus the full range of Irish dance tunes, from ancient to newly composed. Their fifth album The One I Loved the Best was recorded with Leeds pianist and guitarist Chris O’Malley. The London Lasses have taken their music to some of the world’s most prestigious festivals and concert halls, including the Royal Albert Hall, where they performed the first ever BBC Proms céilí in 2008.

CrossHarbour is a dynamic young band from London’s thriving Irish music scene. Fusing well-loved traditional tunes and songs with original compositions and innovative arrangements, CrossHarbour is renowned for its highly virtuosic, energetic and polished performances.The band features the remarkable abilities of flute and whistle virtuoso and composer Órlaith McAuliffe (winner of 19 All-Ireland titles), fiddler Sam Proctor, bodhrán and bouzouki player Tad Sargent, multi-instrumentalist Philippe Barnes and singer Rosie Hodgson.

Le Chéile was formed in the early 1970s by musicians who played regularly in the famous sessions at The White Hart on Fulham Broadway. Their classic album Lord Mayo was reissued on CD in 2006. To coincide with that release, the surviving original band members – master fiddler Danny Meehan, Liam Farrell (banjo), John Roe (piano) and Kevin Boyle (guitar) – reformed alongside new recruits Paul Gallagher (flute) and Andy Martyn (accordion). Now they’re back with their exciting big band mix of traditional music from Donegal and Galway.

Celebrating the timeless melodic beauty of traditional Irish music and more, Artisan Row brings together four well-known figures from London's traditional Irish music scene. Derry-born Conor Doherty (vocal and guitar), Kerry-born Elma McElligott (sax, flute, whistles and backing vocals), London-born Karen Ryan (banjo, mandola, fiddle and whistles) and Liverpool-born Pete Quinn (piano and backing vocals). The band are releasing their debut album Wild Winds in 2017, featuring traditional and newly composed tunes and songs in the traditional Irish genre plus a couple of tracks from the Eastern European music traditions.

The Trad Gathering brings together a large number of the best young traditional Irish musicians from across London and further afield. In 2009 Return to Camden Town Festival commissioned the renowned Leitrim composer, Charlie Lennon, to write a suite of music for the group called Recollections of Camden Town which they went on to perform at the Royal Festival Hall. After a six-year break, in 2017, group leaders Karen Ryan and Pete Quinn relaunched the project with the next wave of great young musicians in and around the capital.
