Fancy a concert that will have everyone singing and stomping along?
The Rapparees, Portico, Events in Portaferry, Live music
The Rapparees are back in Portaferry to deliver their thrilling brand of Irish folk. Expect an evening charged up with hits from their previous four albums and new material crafted especially for this series of concerts.
Folk songs unrooted from the archives juxtaposed with self-penned material give the Rapparees a unique flavour and a sense that the tradition is not just being preserved but that it is indeed alive and kicking. The Rapparees are based in Belfast and have been putting their own spin on folk and traditional Celtic music for 15 years. Theirs is a distinctive sound, the kind forged growing up together.
