Picture This to join Ryan Sheridan and Hermitage Green in Leixlip this weekend

Athy's Picture This

Ryan Sheridan and Hermitage Green are the headline acts on Saturday, June 4, at the Court Yard Hotel as part of the Leixlip Festival, with a packed evening’s entertainment in store and plenty of local interest on stage too.

The Klares, a young, up and coming band with members from both Kildare and Dublin, kick off proceedings at 6pm. They have brought out two well-received EPs, Dirty Birds and Cookoo.

Athy’s Picture This, the duo of Ryan Hennessy and Jimmy Rainsford, take to the stage at 6.45pm. The pair just started performing together last October, but recently sold out their debut gig at Dublin’s Academy.

Hermitage Green are on stage at 7.45pm, and are known for their unique and captivating live sets. Their unique arrangement of instruments that includes the bodhrán, djembe, rhythmic guitar and banjo sets them apart as a truly original offering of Irish music.

Ryan Sheridan, whose second album Here And Now recently shot straight to number one in the Irish charts, co-headlines the night and is on stage at 9.15pm.
