JOE Brown, the guitarman who is celebrating his 50th anniversary in the business will be performing at London's St Patrick's Day celebrations on Sunday, March 16.

He will join celebrated singer Róisín Murphy, acclaimed singer songwriter Luka Bloom and Meteor award winners Aslan on the main stage on Trafalgar Square.

London Comhaltas musicians John Devine, Orlaith Mc Auliffe, Sam Proctor and John Myers will also perform with Joe Brown for a session of traditional Irish music on the main stage as part of his set.

Joe first performed alongside Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Johnnie Cash and Billy Fury and is still producing new music today. The St Patrick's Day festival, which is organised by Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and sponsored by Tourism Ireland, is free and open to all and expected to attract large crowds. It is part of a day of activities that will see thousands lining the streets to cheer on the parade through central London, Irish food in Covent Garden and a giant Ceili in Leicester Square.
