A group of Irish musicians based in Ilford will be raised to the international stage next month when a singer competes in the Irish Music Championships.
Nancy Palumbo, 12, has reached the final of the competition and will perform in Derry, Northern Ireland, in August.
Fellow members of the Irish Music Club, which meets in Ilford, will be travelling with her to join workshops with folk musicians from around the world.
Nancy, who sings in English and Gaelic, is used to performing with the group at events around Redbridge.
Mum Fiona said: “She’s always loved singing, ever since she was little. She was always louder than everyone in the choir.

The Irish Music Club welcomes anyone who plays folk instruments, including accordions, fiddles and flutes.
