Liverpool Irish Festival are proud to announce their line up for Mersey River Festival 2017, where we will takeover the Liverpool International Music Stage on the Kaskelot (accessible via Albert Dock Gates, from the Strand).
Our line up runs the gamut from nautical tradition, through to lyrical, wistful, contemporary and fun.
12pm – The Rock Light Rollers (Gerry Smith + 5 friends)
1pm – Emma Lusby
2pm – Seafoam Green presented by Mellowtone (Dave O’Grady + support)
3pm – Mamatung (Jodie, Becky and Emma)
4pm – Tippin’ it Up (Chris Kelly and John Marshall).
This event is free to enter and no tickets are required. It’s drop-in, drop-out and casual. We hope to see you there!
If you are interested in the history of shanty-singing – here’s a short history, as provided by Rock Light Roller’s band member, Professor Gerry Smith.
