Belfast’s Custom House Square will come alive with the sound of some of the island’s most exceptional musical talent this St Patrick’s Eve for a family-friendly, fun-packed concert presented by The Duncairn Arts Centre.

Headlining the event will be award-winning Dublin singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan who has captivated audiences across the world with her mesmerizing vocals and soulful folk-pop sound. Her band consists of an ensemble of outstanding musicians & singers for a truly immersive experience.

Trad supergroup Jiggy continue the tradition of their musical ancestors while bringing a whole new exotic flavour to the table. More of a collective than an orthodox band, Jiggy’s mercurial lineup mixes and melds Irish traditional music, world rhythms and cutting-edge dance grooves. Joining them on stage will be ethnic dance group Shamrock Bhangra.

Also performing will be David Keenan who is one of the most fascinating new Irish artists of the past decade. His thoughtful, poetic approach to songwriting and raw, honest delivery make his live performances unmissable and unforgettable.
