Magical Afternoon with Sean and James Cannon

We enjoyed an absolutely magical afternoon concert at the London Irish Centre on Friday 18th December. The concert was hosted by the Irish Elderly Advice Network and Irish Elders Culture Office and featured Sean and James Cannon with support from the Irish Pensioners Choir.

Sean and James Cannon performed a range of songs that included songs in Irish, Italian and English. It was a wonderful mix of ballads, folk tunes and folk songs that really got everybody going!

Here is our very own Nora Mulready performing a few Irish tunes with the Cannons. Sean and Nora






Sean gave a very special dedication to Mollie Ormonde who turns 90 this December – Happy Birthday Mollie! And both Sean and James were very generous in performing with the Irish Pensioners Choir, Nora and Kathy to end the show.

We loved every minute of it, and would like to say a huge thank you to Sean and James Cannon and the Irish Pensioners Choir for performing, and to everyone who came in support of the concert, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

You can catch the Irish Pensioners Choir in their last performance of the year this evening as part of Christmas by Candlelight with Irish Heritage in St. George’s Church, Hanover Square.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us here at the Irish Elderly Advice Network and the Irish Elders Culture Office.
