Ding Ding…the 4th…and final round !

Sunday.  Traditionally the preserve of the hardcore Festival Goers, but recommended to all !!   We don’t like to let the Festival Peter out on Sunday – we like to go out with a BANG – and this year is no exception.

Kicking off with some lunchtime listening from 2pm, we have the”Rhythm Rascals” in the Roe Park Resort and the “Dharma Bums” in Frank Owens.


Rhythm Rascals – Roe Park Resort @ 2pm

Dharma Bums – Franks @ 2pm

Next up, it’s the “Eunan McLaughlin Quartet” in Douglas’s from 3pm.  Eunan, the son of local jazz legend Gabriel, is joined today by Rick Swann, who has made several guest appearances at this year’s festival, as well as headlining Frank’s Marquee on Saturday night.  Usually to be found in renowned city clubs & concert halls, make sure you don’t miss the chance to catch this highly acclaimed and talented Quartet right here in Limavady.

Banters plays host to Error “Errol Walsh and Ted Ponsonby” from 7pm, who have come down from the Keady mountain to grace Limavady town centre with their laid back blend of blues.  These guys opened our 2014 Festival and between them bring huge experience and ability to the stage.
