From Rigging to Gigging: The Jeanie Sessions

#MUSIC AFLOAT - The replica emmigrant barque Jeanie Johnston, is to embark with an exciting line-up of artists from all genres onto its timber decks. The unique music venue of the famine museum ship is located on Custom House Quay within the Dublin 'Docklands' quarter.

The next session on 20th October (7pm) is to be performed by Larry Beau. The Galwegian minstrel, composer and story collector will be accompanied by special guests to record the new album The Sundance Vagabonds live! on board the vessel.

The new album was written during a one year trip, from east to west coast America and was inspired by Peregrine White, the first-born to the Pilgrims when they arrived in the New World on the caravel Mayflower in 1620.

The sessions are held below decks in the main saloon where space is strictly limited to 80 persons. Advance booking online is recommended. Tickets are €15.00 and are available online through the Jeanie Johnston website by clicking HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
