First Fortnight Festival at the Hawk's Well

As part of the Mental Health Awareness festival First Fortnight, Choice Music Prize winner Adrian Crowley and Nocturnes are playing at Hawk's WellTheatre on January 12th and The Glens Centre in Manorhamilton on January 13th.

Dubbed “the best songwriter that no one has heard of” by legend Ryan Adams in a Rolling Stone interview, Choice Music Prize winner Adrian Crowley has continually stunned fans and newcomers alike in a career spanning 6 albums. First Light is an unmissable opportunity to see a master in action.

Nocturnes are no ordinary band. Described by The Irish Times as bringing ‘subtle elements of the fantastical’, their new age noir sounds have been in great demand on the festival circuit. One of RTÉ Culture’s favourite groups, Nocturnes are a must-see.

Doors 7:30pm - Event starts 8pm

Tickets are available from the Hawkswell Theatre Box Office and on 071 916 1518 / and the Glens Centre 071 9855833
