The festival season isn’t quite over yet. A plethora of extra acts have been added to this year’s Sligo Live festival, taking place in the northwest from October 23rd to 27th.

Sly & Robbie and Cathy Davey are the somewhat eclectic co-headliners at the Radisson SAS Hotel on October 24th. Wonder is there any chance of a collaboration on the night?

Others playing the festival include Orchestra Baobab, Solas, Tom Baxter (the poor man’s David Gray), Le Vent Du Nord, Fred and Jason Byrne (the self-titled “Funny Irish Stand Up Comedian” per his website).
