Irish Embassy & TFL call for Irish performers in London to join St. Patrick’s Underground celebrations
For the second year Transport for London (TfL) and the Irish Embassy are bringing Irish music and poems to the London Underground to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
As part of the London St Patricks Festival 2017, the Irish Embassy invites performers to express their interest (see below) in showcasing Irish creative talent at various Underground Stations on Saturday 18th March 2017.
Highlighting Irish culture and talent over St. Patrick’s weekend is the main focus for this initiative. They are looking for expressions of interest for this exciting opportunity including those interested in an ‘Irish poetry corner/slam’, traditional Irish musicians (of all ages), Irish music and other performance ideas.
Artists will be participating on a voluntary basis. As arrangements are finalised, busking slots will be assigned and it may not be possible to accommodate all performers.
Please reach out to other artists and musicians that you know to spread interest. Availability can be agreed by Friday 10th February.
The questions below should be answered by the artist(s) or groups who would like to be part of the project.
