First Light - featuring Adrian Crowley & Nocturnes
A celebration of positive mental health through music and words featuring Choice Music Prize winner, Adrian Crowley and ambient Irish-folk group, Nocturnes. Founded in 2009, First Fortnight is a charity that challenges mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action. In 2018 they are teaming up with Sligo-based record label Bluestack Records to present - for the first time - First Fortnight events in Sligo.
Dubbed 'the best songwriter that no-one's heard of' by legend Ryan Adams in a Rolling Stone magazine interview, 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 at The Hawkswell.
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.
