Hothouse flowers and Paddy Casey with special guest, his daughter Saoirse Casey, have been added to the programme for this summer’s Bulmers Live at Leopardstown series. The outdoor concerts are set to take place at the Leopardstown racecourse on Thursday evenings between June and August.
First up in the festival are ‘80s rockers Hothouse Flowers on June 7. With over 30 years of performing experience, and a UK number one single, ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ under their belt just last year, they’re not to be missed.
The following week, the nationally beloved Paddy Casey will take to the stage, in an appearance with his daughter Saoirse Casey. Paddy Casey is well known to Irish audiences, with two consecutive Meteor Music Awards for Best Irish Male to his name. Lesser known, but not for long, is Paddy’s 20 year old daughter Saoirse. Following performances with Declan O’Rourke at the National Concert Hall, Saoirse is well on her way to becoming a household name.
Already confirmed in the series are Dublin duo Hudson Taylor, Paul Young, Keywest, Smokie, and The Waterboys.
The confirmed schedule is as follows:
June 7 - Hothouse Flowers
June 14 - Paddy Casey with Special guest Saoirse Casey
