Armagh has long been celebrated for its association with cultural heritage and the traditional arts.

The city and county have spawned many musicians, poets, painters and writers who have taken their place in the pantheon of artists with a reputation on the international stage. One such local artist is Brian Finnegan, a founding member of the renowned and highly acclaimed band Flook.

Flook is an Anglo-Irish band playing traditional-style instrumental music, much of it penned by the band themselves. Their music is typified by extremely fast, sometimes percussive, flute and whistle atop complex guitar and bodhrán rhythms. Flook is made up of Brian Finnegan, Sarah Allen, Ed Boyd and John Joe Kelly.

Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years

Critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years continues to delight audiences across the globe. Featuring stunning vocal harmonies from world-class musicians, this spectacular concert transports you on a journey through the epic songs and history of the much-loved Simon and Garfunkel.

The show is a celebration of the unprecedented rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York, who went on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone, and receiving 10 Grammy Awards.

In 1981, they performed to over half a million people in their hometown of New York, and in 1990 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Collectively known as Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years since its creation in 2011. Much like their idols, they became friends at school and could not resist singing together from a tender age.

Alongside stops in London’s West End, the show has toured extensively around the UK, Europe, United States and Australia, attracting packed houses night after night. With consecutive sell-out runs since 2014 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, they are championed as “one of the best vocal groups touring today”, whose sounds are ‘’simply breathtaking’’.

Featuring all the major hits such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the iconic Bridge Over Troubled Water, don’t miss out on this phenomenal show.

RBG Trio

Formed in 2019, The RBG Trio is a collective of three of Ireland’s leading jazz artists – Meilana Gillard [tenor saxophone], Dave Redmond [bass], and Kevin Brady [drums].

Renowned for their tight interplay and incredible storytelling, the band have carved out a ‘must see’ reputation. With blues always in their foundation, the trio’s sound ranges from pre to post-bop, soulful to grunge, free to swinging.

The trio’s repertoire ranges from the traditional saxophone trio canons of Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson, to more contemporary and improvised output. It is an approach where free-form exploration rubs shoulders with reimagined music from the likes of Nirvana and Soundgarden.

Ultimately, nothing is off limits. It is a band led by tunes – mainstream or lesser known, self-penned or reinterpreted, traditional or contemporary. If it works, it works. Additionally, each member of The RBG Trio composes for the band, which lends to the trio’s diverse output and constant surprise.

Stand-Up Session

A unique night full of laughter and craic as four of the country’s finest stand-up acts take to the Market Place stage.

Teresa Livingstone is a musical comedian and a classy lady, or at least she tries to be, despite everything being a 40-something Northern Irish woman throws at her. One of Northern Ireland’s top comedy acts, she has appeared on BBC’s The Blame Game, Soft Border Patrol and Late Licence. Don’t miss her unique blend of stand-up, songs, gin and ‘going out’ leggings.

Mark McLernon is a strange stand-up comedian from the Mid-Ulster town of Magherafelt. He has a surreal take on life and is a very, very silly man. He has been gigging for 10 years and has supported the likes of Tim McGarry and Colin Murphy. When he’s not on stage you can find Mark indulging in his hobby—working as a full-time Maths teacher.

Paddy McGaughey is the resident compere of the successful Braid Comedy Club and has supported Tim McGarry on all his stand-up tours. He won Comic Relief at the Pavilion Comedy Club comedy competition and has written two stage plays.

Sean Hegarty is a Northern Irish one-liner comic, famous for his sharp wit and hilariously dry jokes. He has performed at The Edinburgh Comedy Festival and on radio and TV.
