More info on the bands playing:

The River Valley Band
Kilkenny’s The River Valley Band were built on the sound of deep American folk music and the materials used to finish it were the wild earth and stone tones of modern Ireland, yet they sound neither American nor Irish. They are not contracted to any style, they are children of music, ripping strips from musical fabrics that stretch from the deserts to the cellars and weaving themselves a robe of their own that just can’t be found in the common high street fashion outlets. This is not a fashion, it is custom made.

Hot Sprockets
Hailing from the suburbs of South Dublin, they are five friends who came together with a shared love of Rock N’Roll music’¦The kind of Rock N’ Roll music that is haunted by the ghost of country and blues’¦Take the good-time revolutionary spirit of MC5, simmer it down to the sounds of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, add some rough-edged 40s delta blues and you have in your hands the perfect recipe for a beautiful sonic nugget that we like to call “The Hot Sprockets”. They recently earned a much coveted support slot with The Zutons.

Floyd Soul & The Wolf
Floyd Soul & The Wolf play rock and roll stripped back to the basics. They’ve got stomping bass lines, and harmonies that hit you like a cannonball. After releasing two successful singles and touring the length and breadth of the country, the band are currently working hard to raise funds for their debut album. Recording is set to take place in Nashville, Tennessee this summer.
