Jennifer John leads 'Tupelo Honey' with other Irish Sea Sessions members at the Irish Sea Sessions 2011.

With the atmosphere and attitude of a session, but in a concert hall, The Irish Sea Sessions 2011 returned to build on the success of last year's event - one reviewer gave it 15 out of 10!

Part super-group, part colossal session and part festival, all in a single gig, the Irish Sea Sessions was voted Best Folk/Roots Event of the Year by Liverpool Daily Post readers in 2010.

This 2011 line up included top contemporary music stars and some of the finest traditional musicians from Liverpool and Ireland.

Under the musical direction of Bernard O'Neil (Syriana, Quicksilver, Sinead O'Connor, June Tabor) the line up included singers Damien Dempsey, Alan Burke, Niamh Parsons, Jennifer John and Ian Prowse alongside Gino Lupari on bodhran Terry Clarke Coyne on flutes and whistles, button accordionist, Dave Munnelly, piper John McSherry, fiddler Meabh O'Hare, guitarist Graham Dunne, banjo-player Stevie Dunne and sean-nós dancer Mary McGuiggan.

The Irish Sea Sessions 2012 are now on sale, featuring 14 hand-picked multi-instrumentalists and singers drawn from traditional and contemporary music backgrounds, and from both sides of the Irish Sea. Visit www.liverpoolphil.com/irishseasessions2012 for more information.
