Gigs for a great cause
Oxfam is gearing up for its October Oxjam festival, which encourages musicians to stage concerts in aid of the charity. Last year, some 300 Irish acts took part, holding gigs in venues such as diverse as clubhouses, schools and their own homes. Organisers promise that “some of the biggest names in Irish music” will perform intimate gigs during October. See www.oxfamireland.org/oxjam.
