The annual Inishbofin ‘Off The Rock Fundraiser’ takes place at Monroe’s Live on Friday, 11 March.
Every year Inishbofin holds a Fundraising Concert in the heart of Galway City where Inishbofin’s finest musicians and guests get together to bring the very best of Island Music Sessions to the mainland for one night!
The Inishbofin ‘Off the Rock’ experience celebrates the best of trad music in true Bofin style this time at Monroe’s Live.
Esteemed musicians taking part on the night include Mary Staunton with her old style singing and distinctive accordion playing. Former De Danann singer Andrew Murray will also add his sumptuous voice to the evening along with James Frawley on the concertina. Singer and composer Peadar King from Inishbofin, who previously fronted the band Cornerstone, will join his brother Liam King and a host of other talented musicians including Kevin Abeyta, Gerry Mulvihil, Brian O’Nuallain, Róisín Nola, Paul McClure, Seán Feeney, Enda Kiernan, Murphen Kobold and Gavin Ralston. More artists will be added closer to the date also.
The night aims to raise funds for the development of much needed island amenities and initiatives. Anyone that has ever been to Bofin can testify to the cracking little island that it is, and Monroe’s are hoping people will come out and support their community. It is a perfect opportunity to experience the legendary sessions of Inishbofin at Monroe’s Live!
