If there was ever a time for you to contribute to something worthwhile, then this is the one. The Traditional, Irish, and Folk music community are rallying together to stage a unique fundraising concert in aid of Sergio O’Connor on February 25th 2012. Dublin born Sergio O’Connor is a 9 month old twin boy who was born with an incomplete oesophagus. Donal O’Connor who Sergio’s father, comes from a well known Dublin family of traditional musicians, and some of their friends and stars of Irish music including Frances Black, Finbar Furey and members of The Dubliners, have offered to perform a live fundraising concert entitled ‘A Show For Sergio’ live at Vicar Street in Dublin on Saturday the 25th of February 2012.
All funds raised from this event will help baby Sergio and his family head over to Boston where surgeons can perform a life changing operation for the little fighter.
The line up of artists performing live on the night include John Sheehan & Barney McKenna of The Dubliners, Frances Black, Finbar Furey, Na Casaidigh, Lad Lane, Aoife Scott, The Bonnymen, Alainn, Peter Browne, Michelle O’Brien and friends, Eamonn Galldubh and many more!
