Please see some recommended London sessions below…

An up-to-date listing of sessions in London can be found at: Irish Music In London Website For over 15 years, Karen has been building a mailing list of people in London and the surrounding area who are interested in receiving information about traditional Irish music, song and dance events. She sends out a newsletter approximately once a week. Many subscribers have expressed how highly they value the service, and that it helps to make the London Irish music community feel tight knit and well informed despite how far and wide many of us are spread across this huge City. The mailing list continues to grow - if you would like to subscribe to this mailing list please join by entering your email address here.

Other ways of receiving regular information about specific Irish music, song and dance events in London are to join the following on facebook:
