Some reasoning behind The Homebeat Social :

1. Curating fuller line ups at festivals make our bones feel good - it’s a chance to piece together varying styles and moods, and it gives us the chance to place talent where it should be placed as proceedings unfold - creating the right atmosphere for Irish acts to do their thing and audiences to enjoy it makes us happy.
2. Those very same bones ain’t getting any younger kids, it’s not so easy to gather the troops these days of jobs and projects and kids and a thousand other things.

So The Homebeat Social gives you the chance to gather a gang and spend the night in one place - no messin, just a night of genuinely great music, in nice surrounds, with nice vibes, and your pals all under one roof.

It’ll be just like Christmas, but with better music.
Easy.

“One of the purest, clearest talents I know, a fabulous singer, bursting with raw Irish soul. Striking and original songs and an effortlessly brilliant band”. – Brian Eno

Rightly regarded as one of the great soul voices in Ireland, Bronagh Gallagher was raised in Derry and now lives in Dublin. At the age of 17, whilst still a St Mary’s schoolgirl,
she was cast as Bernie McGloughlin in Alan Parker’s film about a Dublin soul band, The Commitments. Since then her music has alternated with film roles
(Pulp Fiction, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Sherlock Holmes) plus theatre work (Girl From The North Country, War Horse, The Street Of Crocodiles)
and TV drama (Pramface, The Street, You Me And the Apocalypse). However she maintains a special place for singing, writing and performing music.

Bronagh will be performing live with her band and debuting some brand new material for this show in The Sugar Club

Strength in Numbers.

Irish Hip Hop Against Homelessness is an idea to bring everyone in the hip hop scene together to do something positive about the worsening homeless situation in Ireland. The housing crisis, gentrification, and poor government management have left 10,000s of people without the basic necessity of a place to call home.

Inner City Helping Homeless have 200 volunteers on the streets helping people who are sleeping rough and bringing them hot drinks, sandwiches, clothing and sleeping bags. On top of this they run an advocacy program assisting homeless families and individuals as to how to navigate their way out of their situation.

Needless to say this is an incredible organisation and I am so delighted that everyone from the Irish hip hop scene has decided to come together to attempt to make a positive change in our community.
