Back in the early 1980’s, Enniscorthy could be described as nothing short of a “Hot Bed” of Rock N’ Roll activity. Like most small Irish towns, the Rock N’ Roll and Rockabilly scene fell dormant for some time and lost both its international and national prominence. However, the die hards of Enniscorthy did not allow for their music to die out, and in more recent times, have re-ignited local interest putting Enniscorthy back on the Rockin’ map. Now the South East is swinging with more gigs, festivals and dances than ever before.
During the Enniscorthy Rockin’ Food Festival this August Bank Holiday (July 29th – 1st August), a vast collection of Rockabilly, Rock N’ Roll and Rhythm and Blues musicians and bands will perform over the course of the weekend. Expect to see The Excellos, Rythem Slicks, Riley and The Moonrockers, Gene Gambler and The Shufflers and many more.
Undecided of who to follow? Why not follow or delve in and out of the Rock N’ Roll Gig Trail, find full details on the trails brochure. Rock your socks off this August Bank Holiday in the Rock N’ Roll town of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.
