New Names Added to Moira Calling
Second stage will introduce the Armagh festival's audience to some of Northern Ireland's most promising musicians in addition to seasoned acts
Set to become one of the most exciting additions to the Northern Ireland music events calendar, Moira Calling has announced a second stage where a host of new acts will perform during the one-day festival, which takes place on September 10 in the County Armagh village's Demesne parkland.
Callum Stewart, Michael Mormecha, Hannah McPhillimy, Siobhán Day, Beulah Kim, Bear Skin and Cup o Joe will join an already exciting line-up headlined by Dublin duo Hudson Taylor. Other acts previously confirmed to be playing include Ex Magician, Ports, David C Clements and Arborist.
One of the most promising talents this summer, Callum Stewart’s current single ‘Parachute’ has been making its mark on the airwaves all across Ireland, from Cool FM to being named 'Single of the Week' on RTE 2FM. Meanwhile Hannah McPhillimy, who hails from the North Coast, has had support from Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and is creating waves across the UK with her most recent EP release.
Described as 'wonderfully unique' by Art Rocker magazine, Mojo Fury frontman Michael Mormecha has been a recognisable face on the music scene for many years and recently celebrated the release of his debut solo album LOFi LiFE.
Presented by Brown Lemonade Ltd, Moira Calling also promises to showcase the best locally-sourced food and drink coupled with a range of the finest craft beer and cider produced by Northern Ireland’s blossoming micro brewing industry.
Jillian Marsden from Brown Lemonade Ltd said: 'Our second stage has been aptly named the 'All The Little Lights' stage. Anyone familiar with Brown Lemonade NI will know that over the past 12 months we have worked tirelessly and passionately to give a stage to some of Northern Ireland's most talented and interesting musical talents.
'The second stage will emulate these nights but recreate the cosy, intimate feel of our 'All The Little Lights Nights' and present some of our veteran performers but also introduce some new artists who we are really excited about.'
