SOME OF Galway’s best indie-rock and folk/roots bands will perform across three days in the Galway Arts Centre for the venue’s new music festival GAC(h ) Duine.
The festival runs from Thursday April 18 to Saturday 20 at the centre on 47 Dominick Street. As well as live music there will be daytime workshops for voice, songwriting, and guitar.
The line up is: Dead Red Light, Noriana Kennedy, Red Eskimo (Thursday 18 ); Peter Delaney, Mikey and the Scallywags (Friday 19 ); and Dott, Oh Boland, Hunk, Laminator, Adultrock, Cave Ghost (Saturday 20 ). These are BYOB events. Doors open from 8.30pm to 11.30pm.
The festival will include a daytime event on Saturday, entitled the Hardcore Tea Party, involving live music from punk and metal bands, a range of teas, and (just what the vicar ordered ) cucumber sandwiches.
