The historic courtroom at Lifford Old Courthouse will once again transform this Saturday, 25th June, as it hosts its second live gig of the year.
A lineup of talented local musicians and poets are set to take to the stage in a unique showcase of Donegal performers.
Performing on the night will be musicians Jim ‘Farmer’ Harte, Amy Meehan (main pic), Lynn Campbell and Mickey Duffy, alongside spoken word poet Paul Hannigan.
The concert makes the latest milestone for Lifford Old Courthouse as it returns to hosting events regularly after a two year hiatus.
“It’s great to be getting back into action again and welcoming people through the door,” said Gillian Graham, Manager of Lifford Old Courthouse.
“Like everyone we’ve had a tough few years, but we’re delighted to be able to once again showcase local talent and give them a platform to perform on.”
Headline performer on the night will be Jim ‘Farmer’ Harte, a Lifford native who is now based in Co. Galway, who will be making his third appearance in the venue.
“It’s a great place to play and a really lovely setting for performing in. It’s always a good night and I look forward to seeing some familiar faces”, he said.
