Stomptown Brass is one of the most unique acts in Ireland in recent times. Blending the sounds of funk and blues with powerful driving rhythms, the band make the most of their impressive line-up: two Drummers, two Trombones, two Trumpets, one Saxophone and a Tuba! Their music is bursting with bluesy vocals, infectious grooves, disco beat breakdowns, and funky rhythms all delivered with their signature enthusiasm and showmanship.
To celebrate the end of BIG BANG Dublin 2019, this free outdoor performance for family audiences brings the band’s joyful, loud and upbeat brass street performance to Meeting House Square.

This show has been programmed with the approval of the children on the BIG BANG Dublin Festival Ambassador team!

We are back in Bordeaux this Paddy’s Day weekend to celebrate not just the birth of St. Patrick, but also the birth of The Connemara Irish Pub! This year marks the 25th anniversary for this Irish pub serving creamy pints of Guinness for the French to dip their baguettes into (sacré bleu). If you’re in the area next weekend, stick your head in either Friday 15th, Saturday 16th or Sunday 17th (or all 3 nights) ‘coz we’re setting up residency there for the weekend.
Up for France.
