A Thank You For Supporting Seibo Concert
Seibo are hosting a free concert in thanks for the great support & kindness
we have received from the Parish & Parishioners of St. Ignatius Church, Tokyo. With the kind co-operation of Irish traditional musicians Seibo invite you to an Irish evening performance to be held at St. Joseph Hall.
Why Irish Traditional Music?
March is the month in which Ireland’s national saint St. Patrick is celebrated globally. In line with these celebrations we have organised an Irish-themed evening with an African twist!
・Yasuko Naka Vocals & Irish Harp
Although smitten with Irish music from a young age, Yasuko has
been playing Irish music in earnest since 1998.
Having spent some time in Ireland studying the traditional
singing techniques she now accompanies her song with the Irish harp.
Expect to hear songs in both the English & Irish languages.
・Kyoko Yamane Piano
Kyoko also participates in the chorus and provides
harmony for songs. She is responsible for the Snare Drum
wing of the Tokyo Pipe Band and has appeared in the New
York & Czech Republic St. Patrick’s Day Parades.
