Online concert for Irish Music and Dance in London (IMDL)
Back in the autumn, Karen Ryan of Irish Music and Dance in London (IMDL) invited Máire and Chris to take part in a series of concerts she had arranged for this spring in King's Place, London. When the lockdown arrived, all concerts migrated online. As travelling to London was impossible because of Covid restrictions, IMDL arranged for Chris and Máire to be filmed at the Courthouse Arts Centre, Otley, West Yorkshire - their very first online concert. They really enjoyed playing on an actual stage again, with actual PA and lights! The hour-long concert (sponsored by the Irish Embassy and presented in association with the Irish Arts Foundation) was streamed on Friday 26th March and available to watch until April 4th.
Some of the concerts in IMCL's excellent series are still available to watch here.
