Slane St Patrick’s Day Sessions

Irish whiskey brand Slane will celebrate St patrick’s Day (17 March) with a live-streamed gig this weekend.

Featuring appearances from Dublin-born musician Damien Dempsey and Irish rock band Thumper (pictured), The Slane Sessions concert will run from 8pm GMT on Saturday 13 March. The show will air on the Hot Press YouTube channel.

Alex Conyngham, co-founder of the Slane Distillery, said: “We have a long history of music at Slane, so for St Patrick’s Day we are delighted to be teaming up with Damien Dempsey, one of the greatest Irish voices of the modern era who will take centre stage at The Slane’s Sessions on the 13th of March. Also joining the stage will be Thumper, a high-flying Dublin sextet who have been blazing a trail in the Irish post-punk scene.”
