Limerick nu-folk singer, Emma Langford is to tonight play the Station Sessions in aid of Focus Ireland.
Ms Langford says this concert offers her a chance to return the support she has received this year.
“It’s great to be part of tonight’s broadcast for Focus Ireland – I feel very privileged to have been supported as an artist by so many throughout the pandemic, and it means a lot to be able to give back in a small way to some of the most vulnerable members of our society,” she said.
The Station Sessions are three nights of live performances by Irish musicians hosted by Focus Ireland and Iarnród Éireann.
The three-night event is being held in Heuston, Kent and Pearse stations, with musicians playing from Dublin to Cork.
Due to public health restrictions, the concert will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
“From the heart of Dublin to Cork, Iarnród Éireann are hosting ‘Station Sessions’ with music from some of Ireland’s leading musicians, all performing to challenge homelessness, change lives in aid of Focus Ireland,” they said.
The Station Sessions kicked off last night with music from Heuston Station, Dublin.
This evenings performance will be streamed from Kent Station, Cork.
Mick Flannery, Jack O’Rourke and Emer O’Flaherty will also play tonight.
“Iarnród Éireann is proud to be supporting Focus Ireland’s work and hope this campaign will help the charity’s work to support more families to make the journey to a home of their own,” they said.
The three-evening music event will finish tomorrow evening in Pearse Station, Dublin.
“Focus Ireland would like to thank Iarnród Éireann for all their continued support and wish everyone a Happy and Peaceful Christmas,” they added.
