’Tis the sea­son to be char­i­ta­ble

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

’Tis the sea­son to be jolly – but also the sea­son to be char­i­ta­ble, should your bank ac­count al­low it. A char­ity gig in aid of Bar­na­dos will be held tonight at The Grand So­cial venue in Dublin. The Christ­mas Con­cert will be MC’D by co­me­dian Ai­dan Bishop and fea­tures a num­ber of Ir­ish bands.

Head­lin­ers are reg­gae-soul group The Bar­ley Mob, who have played more than 150 gigs this year. In the spirit of all things cheesy and char­i­ta­bly Christ­massy, lead singer Adam Daly said that the band felt “re­ally priv­i­leged to lend our songs in re­turn for smiles.”

They’ll be joined in their fundrais­ing en­deav­our by singer-song­writer Fi­ach, G-star & Robo and a num­ber of other guests. There will also be a raf­fle and the chance to win a signed gui­tar of Damien Dempsey’s and tick­ets to the Knock­an­stockan and Sibín Fes­ti­vals. Tick­ets (¤12) on the door or from even­tele­phant.com/ bar­na­dos.
