Very pleased to present an evening of solo strings featuring two of our favourite London-based musicians, Billy Steiger and Ecka Mordecai.
We'd love to see you. In order to keep things safe we will be limiting capacity to 30 people, with a maximum of 6 people in each group and no standing. Visitors will be asked to scan a QR code at the door when they arrive, using the NHS COVID-19 app. We will be providing hand sanitiser - and note that we will only be accepting card payments.
Billy Steiger was born in Howth on the 16th December, 1986. Now he plays the violin.
“Then he sat down by a pond and began to play a tune. As he played, the most extraordinary thing happened. One by one the fish in the pond began to jump out and fly about in the air. And what is more, they were all different colours and they were singing to the music.”
Patrick, Quentin Blake.
