Bulmers Live at Leopardstown announced today two more excellent live acts to a growing eclectic summer programme. Joining some already revealed stellar performers in Something Happens (June 8), Hot House Flowers (July 13), The Riptide Movement (July 20), The Stunning (July 27) and Sister Sledge (August 10), will be one of Ireland’s finest modern showmen in The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow (June 15) and the Grammy-nominated The Original Wailers(June 22).
From his days fronting the excellent An Emotional Fish, Jerry Fish has been one of this country’s most enigmatic performers, evolving his sounds and artistic aesthetic over the years to become a musical ringmaster of exceptional renown. Jerry’s Mudbug Club brought captivating lounge to a whole new Irish audience, while his Electric Sideshow has wowed festival goers with its Mardi Gras panache in recent years.
The Original Wailers meanwhile have carried the torch of Bob Marley’s globally successful music over the last ten years. Featuring Al Anderson, the guitartist who played on hits such as ‘No Woman No Cry’ and toured with the Wailers during the 70s, The Original Wailers have continued the wonderful legacy left by reggae music’s biggest international star.
With one more major announcement left for summer 2017, Bulmers Live at Leopardstown has again delivered another excellent mix of live music to compliment a programme of top class horse racing, festival food and a wide selection of hospitality options available for everyone from the great value ‘Summer Bundle’ to the premium ‘Summer Party’.
