The 15th Smithwick’s Rhythm ‘n’ Roots Festival is set to be launched on Wednesday evening.
The Americana music festival is just three weeks away, and several of the headline gigs are sold out or nearly so, with Alabama Shakes’ Sunday night gig in the Set Theatre and Israel Nash Gripka’s Sunday gig in Cleere’s among the first to go.
Friends, patrons, sponsors and other supporters of the festival will be gathering in the St Francis Abbey’s Cellar Bar on Wednesday to officially kick off proceedings for the festival that will bring a rockabilly edge to Kilkenny from May 4-7.
