An event to celebrate the life and music of Julia Clifford will be going ahead on the weekend of 26th-28th April 2019 in Suffolk, organised by Katie Howson.

"We are thrilled to be able to announce the first of our special guests for “I Looked East and I Looked West”. We will be welcoming from Ireland: Billy Clifford, Matt Cranitch, Jackie Daly, Bryan O'Leary, Gerry Harrington, Peter Browne and Jerry O'Reilly for starters! Alongside them will be many musicians and friends of Julia’s from England, and there will be more invitations going out when we are a bit further along the road."

This is a fantastic line-up of brilliant musicians, not to be missed. Melodeon / Button accordion fans should not miss the chance to see Jackie Daly and Bryan O'Leary, grandson of the great Sliabh Luachra accordionist, Johnny O'Leary.

Tickets for the event are likely to be available in late 2018.

Not sure where this photograph was taken, Ciarán MacMathúna in the background, so in Ireland c. 1982. Any more information welcomed!
