Longford Live & Local continues with more top music this weekend

The Reves

Ardagh Community Centre hosts pop band the Rêves this Friday

The heatwave was upon music lovers last weekend, as the sun shone on all outdoor concerts as Longford Live & Local continued.

The Shenanigans entertained a sold-out crowd of young fans in Mitchell’s Pub Garden, Legan on Saturday with interactive stories, live music and drama.

If you missed them, they play Clarke’s Pub Garden, Lanesboro on August 7 and Connolly Barracks, Longford on August 14. Tickets on Eventbrite.

Later that day the sound of blues could be heard across the Shannon as Blues Confidential played the sold-out Distillery Yard in Lanesboro.

Sean Connolly’s GAA Club in Ballinalee provided the perfect sunny setting for Ríl Óg’s trad music with a twist, local rock supergroup NEON and country-music legend Mick Flavin.

Sunday proved another scorcher, with music fans flocking to Colmcille Community Centre in Aughnacliffe.

Laura Callaghan’s stunning voice, the Sheerin Brothers’ steel guitars and Brendan Kelly Band’s classics and self-penned songs made up the stellar line-up.
