The Atlantic Sessions go online this weekend for a virtual festival

This weekend Causeway Coast and Glens Council in association with Snow Water will be bringing the Atlantic Sessions Virtual Festival to your homes.

Friday, 13th November 2020, 9:05 am

Artists have been filmed in stunning locations across Portstewart and Portrush during the last weeks, and there will be three one hour ‘free to view’ programmes with exclusive performances, conversations, plus messages and videos from festival family and friends.

Artists featured include Anthony Toner, Conor Mason, Joel Harkin, Malojian, New Pagans, Peter O’Kane, Ports, Roe, Sasha Samara, The Darkling Air, Tour Alaska and the programmes are presented by Joe Lindsay. They feature six of the NI Music Prize 2020 nominees, local performers, plus tell the story of the rich musical heritage of the area, all filmed by the incredible Atlantic Ocean.

Presenter Joe Lindsay commented: “We’ll miss seeing you this year and we miss live music as much as you do, but we thought we’d do the next best thing and Atlantic Sessions to your homes! We wanted us all to be together, we wanted to experience the power and beauty of music. Together. As we’ve always done. And we will do again. Until then, keep supporting local music and venues in any way you can.”
