Artists and creatives share thoughts ahead of Liverpool Irish Festival

We’ve had the pleasure to play the Irish fest a few times over the last few years and it’s always been different and good fun. A great way to meet and play with other musicians both local and from further afield. Obviously we are an Irish band but we’ve made Liverpool our home for a number of years. Everyone knows the links between Liverpool and Ireland but it’s important that we keep building and maintaining the connection and not rely on years gone by.”

“It’s a really special event every year so I am thrilled to be asked to play again at Liverpool Irish Festival. I have had long family ties with Liverpool over many decades and I am proud to call it my second home for the past 13 years.”

Míde Houlihan

“It kind of feels like the culmination of a lot of work from both sides, as well as being the first time that we are all in physically in a room together, so we really can’t wait.  It’s really great to be paired with a company like Mellowtone, we operate in very similar ways, so it really is a good fit.”

Mick Grace, Unemployable Promotions

“We love working with the Liverpool Irish Festival, and have had some wonderful events and collaborations with them over the years.  The links between Ireland and Liverpool are well documented, and we’re really looking forward to this year’s showcase, partnering with Unemployable Promotions, to bring acts from Cork City, and of course Liverpool, to the stage at District.”

David McTague, Mellowtone

“Two years in the making we are finally showcasing, side-by-side, this incredible exchange we’ve been developing between Cork and Liverpool. From Here to There is a bumper-crop of contemporary musical talent. By hearing them together, we may get a sense of the influences shared between our islands and of future collaborations we can share.”
