It’s always good to see promoters having a go with a festival during what is supposed to be the off-season. Now in its eighth year, Atlantic Sessions takes over cafes, restaurants, hotels, pubs, coffee shops, music venues and town halls in Portrush, Portstewart and Portballintrae for four nights of music and events.

Acts playing Atlantic Sessions from November 17 to 20 include Malojian, David C Clements, PORTS, Michael Mormechan, Duke Special, VerseChorusVerse, The Darkling Air, Jealous of the Birds, Ryan Vail, Arborist, Documenta and Ex-magician. There will also be a special John T Davis event with screenings of Shellshock Rock and Hobo and a Q&A with the director. Admission to all events is free of charge
