A weekend of live music and talks featuring a collection of the best political and topical songwriters Britain has to offer, as well as showcasing our own local talent. Curated by local singer-songwriter Paddy Nash, ‘Music for a New Revolution’ will focus on artists who are singing about the issues that we face now as a society and will explore the impact music can have on our political systems, protest and activism.
The weekend will kick off on Friday 30 August in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Dublin Lockout. The line-up so far includes The Mighty Stef, Grace Petrie, Steve White & The Protest Family, Robb Johnson, Paddy Nash & The Happy Enchiladas, Connor Kelly, Teknopeasant and Conor McAteer. More acts are to be announced including a very special surprise appearance from one of the finest political songwriters of our time.
