Declan O’Rourke and The Lost Brothers have been announced as headliners for the Stowaway Sessions at the Irish Maritime Festival this summer.
The Stowaway Sessions are a series of gigs that take place on The Earl of Pembroke, a tall ship which will sit in Drogheda. The nature of the venue means that it is an extremely intimate environment with a capacity of only 85 people.
The Lost Brothers, an Irish folk duo, will be headlining the opening session on 15 June with support on the night coming from Eve Belle. The pair released their 5th album Halfway Towards a Heeling in January and the festival will be the second gig of their Irish tour which runs until September.
The following night, it’s Declan O’Rourke’s who will be steering the ship. The Dublin singer-songwriter will be bringing his acoustic Irish folk on board The Earl of Pembroke.
Aside from the Stowaway Sessions, The Ballast Quay stage will be an integral part of the festival. 24 acts will be performing over the course of the two days. Gerry Hodgers of The Purple Sessions will be hosting the event and will features performances from the likes of Fuzz Gigolo, Declan Garry and Katie Gallagher.
Tickets are on sale from www.Droichead.com and are priced at €23, which include two drinks.
