The Music Ireland expo in Dublin’s RDS, which runs from today until Sunday, features a music equipment trade show, 10 live acts and workshops with such well-travelled pros as Doug Wimbish, the bassist who features on a number of seminal old-school hip-hop cuts (including “White Lines” and “The Message”) and who has also played with the Rolling Stones, Living Colour and Tackhead.

The real attraction for many, though, will be some promising round-table discussions on various music-business issues. Besides 2FM big potato John Clarke arguing the toss about playlists and radio airtime for Irish artists, there will be discussions and debates on music management, songwriting, production and a public interview with Rough Trade boss Geoff Travis.

Participants include producer Stephen Street, superstar manager Louis Walsh, Brian Kennedy, Dolores O’Riordan (ex-Cranberries in case you’d forgotten), 2FM’s Mark McCabe and Today FM’s Tom Hardy.
