Avoca have toured in Switzerland, Portugal, Germany and Austria, as well as throughout Ireland. Sean’s song ‘SAVING LIVES’ has been the group’s biggest success to date, topping the Irish National Charts.
We welcome Sean and Simon back to the Space Inside for another lively evening of memorable folk songs.
Jerard J Manning or Jj ‘thumbpicks’ Manning plays acoustic guitar, slide guitar and 5 string banjo. He has been playing on the acoustic scene for 30 years off and on. In his early years he performed at Cambridge, Bromyard and Tanner's Hatch festivals, as well as an appearance at the Cardiff University Festival alongside such musical note worthies as The Chieftains, The Fureys and Davy Arthur.
Jj will be joined on the night by some of his friends. Anything can happen.
