Horslips added to London Feis 2011

Following a storming St. Patrick’s Night concert with the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast, Horslips are set to play London Feis 2011 on Sunday June 19th.

“Celebrating 21 years of Irish music”, London Feis 2011 looks set to be a worthy successor to Vince Power’s legendary London Fleadhs.
Like the Fleadhs, which in their day were highlights of the English festival season, the Feis takes place in Finsbury Park.
London Feis 2011 “an open air event on four stages” sees Bob Dylan headline on Saturday 18th while Sunday night 19th sees Horslips play support to headliner Van Morrison.

The last six months has seen Horslips play an Irish mini tour climaxing in Dublin’s O2, a January gig in Glasgow as part of Celtic Connections, a set in Croke Park for the Dublin - Mayo game and the Ulster Orchestra concert.
Dates confirmed for later in the year include a special guest appearance at Fairport’s Cropredy Festival in August and a set at the Guinness Festival in Sion, Switzerland.

More gigs by a reformed and reinvigorated Horslips are due to be announced later this year… watch this space!!
