In April this year, Ireland’s Ambassador to Great Britain, Daniel Mulhall (pictured!) came onto my 6 Music show to share his life-long love of the poet’s work and why he is considered one of history’s greats as part of the 150th year celebrations of the poet’s birth. He joined me on air in reciting some of Yeats’ much-loved poems. And the celebrations continue tomorrow, when I’m heading to the Irish embassy to sing Sally Gardens.
And the WB Yeats celebrations don’t stop there! Tomorrow night, more artists will throng atNell’s Jazz and Blues bar in Kensington in honour of this great poets legacy, including the Chieftains, Cathy Jordan, Christy Moore and many, many more. Follow my twitter for live updates!
