Aidlink for Turkana
Aidlink For Turkana, now in its third year, brings together choirs and singer-songwriters to perform their songs in a completely new way.
Join Aidlink on Saturday 2nd November as we move to the even bigger venue of the National Stadium to present an event that will fill the room with glorious song, raising voices, funds and hope for some of the most isolated and marginalised people in Africa- the Turkana in northern Kenya.
Singers performing on the night include Ailbhe Reddy, Blaithin Carney, Cry Monster Cry, Davy Lyons, Dermot Lambert (Blink), Eleanor McEvoy, Inni-K, Muireann, The Pale, Ruth Mac, The Silken Same, Stockton’s Wing and Ultan Conlon.
They’ll be singing with the following choirs:

All of the choirs and singers will join in together for a finale version of Mic Christopher’s song ‘Heyday’.
