The Manchester May Day Festival Music Night
Sat 29 April 2017, 19:30 – 23:00 BST
Join us at the end of a packed day of events for a fantastic night of music.
19.30 Tony Harper - Tony is a singer songwriter with an Americana / Folk feel focussing on contemporary and traditional songs of resistance.
20.00 Claire Mooney - Claire’s music is defined by her passion and her politics. She writes of protest, peace, justice, love and life in an enthralling blend of passionate, playful and political songs.
21.00 Quiet Loner - Matt Hill is an understated yet powerful solo performer delivering a live show that is emotional, political, occasionally angry but nearly always gentle and human
22.00 Honeyfeet Duo - Ríoghnach Connolly & Ellis Davies - Ríoghnach Connolly is a force of nature, a singer of great versatility and soul. Her style is her own, and you can hear this as she wraps her vocal chords around a jazz take on a folk tune, or when leading an electro-hip-hop group onstage. Here, she'll be joined by Ellis Davies, as they sing the music of Honeyfeet in a stripped back format, along with the traditional Irish music and sean nós with which she grew up.
