Thin Lizzy added to London Feis bill
Paul Brady, Jimmy Cliff and The Coronas also to play Finsbury Park festival
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Mar 2011
The line-up for the inagural London Feis continues to get more and more impressive by the day! Irish legends Thin Lizzy have just been announced to play the Sunday night, joining Van Morrison at the top of the bill. Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff has also been confirmed, along with Paul Brady, Eddi Reader and Hothouse Flowers.
Meanwhile, the line-up for the Saturday night of the festival continues to look no less impressive with The Coronas and US rockers Gaslight Anthem being added to join existing headliners Bob Dylan and Christy Moore. The festival takes place on June 18 and 19.
In related news, the Phil Lynott Exhibition, running at the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Dublin, has been extended for a month due to phenomenal demand. The impressive collection of memorabilia, song lyrics, exhibits, paintings, tributes and photographs of the late rock legend has been receiving rave reviews in what is undoubtedly a renowed interest in the late Thn Lizzy frontman.
The Philip Lynott Exhibition is open daily. For more see www.philiplynottexhibition.com.
