Tickets are now on sale for the 3 main events at The Acoustic Yard Music Festival with a weekend of top quality music and song with Irish Legends The Pale headlining Saturday May 11th in the Clock Tavern Restaurant.

The boys are releasing a new album and tour at that time and will guarantee a party for the weekend revellers. Special guest for the evening will be the soulful Danny G and the Major 7ths. Their song ‘Say When’ was The Acoustic Yard Radio Show’s song of 2018. Have a listen to The Pale here and their famous hit ‘Butterfly’.

On Friday May 10th the vocal duo of Morrissey & Marshall are back in Ireland with a one off gig in the West. They will also play The Clock Tavern Restaurant sharing their infectious tunes and superb harmonies. If you like the Beatles, Peter and Gordon or The Everly Brothers then you won’t be disappointed. Listen below to ‘I’ve Got a Plan’.

Special guest will be from Noah and the Whale fame Matt Owens who will be releasing his debut album ‘Whisky and Orchids’.

On Sunday May 12th we head to Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar to finish the festival with award winning folk singer Aoife Scott. Aoife wrote ‘All along the Wild Atlantic Way’ (listen below) which has become a bit of an anthem here in the west and a relevance to the beautiful scenery here around Westport.

Aoife has toured and wooed audiences all over the world and has proved she is just as talented as her mother Frances Black and her auntie Mary Black.

Special guest is Kevin May from Ballinrobe who was a member of New York based acts Storyman and The Guggenheim Project. He also regularly offers his keyboard talents to popular original band Vickers Vimy.
