Festival News : Liss Ard add to already excellent line-up

The festival formerly known as Cork X Southwest has added a couple more names to their small - but high quality - list of artists set to visit Skib in August.

It may have taken the festival a while to get going as regards announcements, advertising and even a confirmation that the west Cork music meet-up would be going ahead but the wheels are starting to move now as the more home-grown likes of Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh and Julie Feeney were added to the bill earlier today.

Also added to Skib's slap-up music meal are BLACK, Chris Stout & Catriona McKay, LOWmountain, Heathers, Moscow Metro and The Ceili All Stars.

Confirmed for Skibbereen, August 4th & 5th:

Chic Toots & The Maytals
Bob Mould Band Paul Buchanan (The Blue Nile)
BLACK Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh
Julie Feeney Joan As Policewoman
Lisa Hannigan Roy Harper
Interference Mick Flannery
