Galway’s live music guide: Sunday 10th June

Happy Sunday to all you beautiful Galwegians! Look’s like we’re getting a little liquid sunshine out there today but worry not, there’s music galore to keep you all entertained as you rehydrate! 😊

The Black Gate Cultural Centre plays host to the Cushion Concert: Violin Duo in Galway from 3pm this afternoon. Music for younger ears! 

You can check out the delightful sounds of Noriana Kennedy and her musical companions playing beautiful folk songs in the Salt House sessions at 4:30pm. If you like your Blues served old-school then get along to E-Bruns and catch Richie Brennan and the Vibe Tribe from 6pm. Jazz at the Mill continues in Il Vicolo this evening from around 7pm with Szymon Misniakbringing some fantastic musicians together for some very smooth sounds!

The Small Glories – Monroe’s Galway get going at 8pm.
“Original and traditional material, with a focus on their dynamic and powerful vocal blend and harmonies.”

Shareef Keyes & The Groove at Roisin Dubh kicks off at 8pm.
“A distinctive sound that fuses 1960s jazz-funk influences with a modern hip-hop undertone.”

The Crane Bar is where you will find Greg Cotter and Mary Flanagan curating the friendliest session in the county from around 9pm. If you happen to be across the river then drop into Tigh Neachtain and check out the amazing Gleewood from 9:30pm. The bad boys from Pyramid kick off in the Quays Bar Galway at around 10:15pm or you can catch the virtuoso bassist Karl Clews around the corner in the Dáil at 10:30pm

Once again, it’s been a week of running from shadow to shade trying to find icepacks and sunscreen. So it’s always a treat to gather in the relative darkness for a couple of hours and get our groove on with all you wonderful Sunday nighters  Joining me in noise making this evening I have…. Eoin Mccann on bass. Maciek Zaworonek on harmonica. Bushkanga Rilla on drums. Mark Sullivan on guitar and Banagher Blues. Bertrand Huvé on sax. Eanna Ryder on keys. Gabo GD on flutes and our very special guest vocalist tonight is Benjamin Turner who will be channelling his inner Motown 

So there you have it folks, another jam-packed day in Galway and if you make it to the end of the night, and you feel like getting your groove on, we’d only love to have the pleasure of your company in the Róisín Dubh where we will be doing our best to keep Monday at bay for just a little while longer!

Doors: 11:30pm

There will be singing.
There will be dancing.
