When it comes to music programming, the Galway Arts Festival has always shown a lot of love for singer-songwriters, and this year Tom Baxter and KT Tunstall play the festival Big Top on July 23rd.

However, there’s plenty to offset that one. Iconic veterans Blondie play the tent on July 24th, while the Dandy Warhols and Ash buddy up for a double-bill the night after.

Buena Vista Social Club siren Omara Portuondo appears on July 20th, and excellent desert bluesmen Tinariwen (video below) and Cape Verde diva Mayra Andrade play on July 22nd.
