Going Coastal: Genuine Irish

Fairhill Coffee
6:30pm November 17th

As part of the Going Coastal festival, Genuine Irish presents Jolie Collins-Woods in Fairhill Coffee.

Genuine Irish are passionate about sharing the rich and vibrant musical culture of Ireland with the world. Our mission is to provide a creative and supportive platform for artists, helping them to be heard and appreciated by a wider audience. At the heart of our endeavour lies the “Fairhill Sessions,” a series hosted in collaboration with Fairhill Coffee Shop on Abbeygate Street.

For Going Coastal the brilliant Jolie Collins-Woods will be bringing her poetic and nuanced songwriting to the Fairhill Sessions stage.

Going Coastal is a festival of contemporary original music featuring young, emerging and established acts from the western edge of Ireland. It takes place over five days, from November 15 – 19, across nine venues in Galway City and includes events curated by The Black Gate, A Modern Movement, Free House, Strange Brew, West Coast Punx, Gash Collective, Ar Ais Arís, Rough Cut, Yawlag Collective, That’s Life, Genuine Irish and Livefeed.

The aim of Going Coastal is to contribute to an inclusive and sustainable vision for independent music on the western edge of Ireland… one that supports emerging artists, celebrates local music heritage, and connects artists, promoters and enthusiasts from across the region.

Going Coastal is funded by Galway City Council and the Galway City Creative Ireland Programme, with support from the Galway County Creative Ireland Programme and Flirt Fm.
