The rockabilly queen is among the acts performing at the new Groove Festival this July.
Killruddery Estate in Wicklow is the venue for Groove, a new two-day soul, funk, roots, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll bash taking place on July 6 and 7.
The people behind it are the Monkstown-based Cable Music – Managing Director Roger Duggan attended last years Hot Press Mix Course – who are also planning to run one-off gigs in Dublin.
Running daily from 2pm to 10.30pm, the headline attractions are:
Saturday – James Morrison and Jazzie B & The Soul II Soul Sound System
Sunday – Imelda May and Damien Dempsey
There will also be a second stage curated by the Whelan’s live crew, a Diversity Tent run by Groove’s charitable partner VSO, artisan food and a Kids’ Zone.
Day tickets (€59) and weekend passes (€99) are available from the festival website. Each adult is allowed to bring one child under 12 for free.
