It’s reconned that 60% of the population of Liverpool is of Irish descent, and the rest just wish they were (or at least that’s what it seems like in Durty Nelly’s on St Patrick’s Night).
OK, so we made the last bit up, but who cares? Because it’s time to celebrate Liverpool’s links with the Emerald Isle (and vice versa) with the sixth annual Liverpool Irish Festival.
The festival starts on 17th October and runs thought to 2nd November, and features plays, talks, art exhibitions, literature, history, sport, and (of course!) lots and lots of music.
And don’t think the music is all just the traditional stuff either, because there’s a fair helping of contemporary Irish music too.
However, there are far too many music events to mention in this one post, so check out the programme of events at the festival website www.liverpoolirishfestival.com
And you can pick out your favourite acoustic music elements from the Liverpool Acoustic Diary at liverpoolacoustic.co.uk/diary
And ours is a Guinness!
