O’Hara’s Pavilion at Festival HQ / Fri 9 June / 8pm / €18 BOOK NOW
Select the Friday Movie & Music Pass when booking, and for just €30 you get a ticket that gets you access to Carlow on Camera, Rusangano Family with support from Emmet Kirwin, the Mystery Movie and Kelly-Anne Byrne's DJ Set.
Recent RTÉ Music Prize winners bring their riotous energy and award-winning music to Carlow Arts Festival. Exploring issues such as identity and belonging, Rusangano Family deliver a hefty dose of honest double-edged lyricism over skewed soul samples, 808 beats and sliced-up breaks. Wearing their hip-hop and electronic influences proudly on their sleeves, Rusangano Family aren’t an act willing to conform to the styles associated with their respective backgrounds. Instead of struggling with the idea of being different, they celebrate it. Sure the rules are only there to be broken!
Spoken word artist, playwright and per-former Emmet Kirwan will be performing a selection of new work and poems.
