Wexford Street Performer and Buskers Competition
Wexford locals and visitors can enjoy listening to great Wexford talent on the Wexford Streets each Friday from Friday 7th to Friday 21st August at various locations each week.
The performances will take place between 6pm-8pm as part of a Visit Wexford initiative to attract and provide entertainment for visitors during the quiet time in town when shops and visitor centres close. The call out for performers supported by Wexford Arts Centre has helped discover some great emerging talent in Wexford town.
The line up will include: Friday 7th August at Bull Ring: The Wha, Megan Kate Doolan and The Gallivants.
Friday 14th August, Bloco Garman Samba Drum Band and Rachel Grace at Selskar Square
Friday 21st August, Shelly O’Grady on Harp, Ciara O Doherty and The Five Nines will perform outside Buglar Doyles, South Main Street.
All acts will also take part in a finale performance in The Bullring starting at 8pm with special guest judge Jackie Hayden, acclaimed music industry figure and author and former General Manager of Hot Press Magazine.
The winner of €500 will be based on votes by the public attending performances and the special judge’s vote. So come out and support Wexford talent and Wexford town. Nearby bars at locations The Undertakers, Buglar Doyles and Green Acres will have outdoor seating and provide refuge should the weather change.
