47 performers row in for Limerick music industry lasting legacy project

Overseen by Noel Hogan of The Cranberries, the Pigtown Fling aims to leave the local music industry with a lasting legacy.

The project will bring together the talents of 47 performers who have written, performed and recorded 17 songs under the guidance of producer Mr Hogan and Dr John Greenwood who worked as creative director.

The original soundtrack will be released and premiered tomorrow night at the Crescent Hall on O’Connell Avenue at a sell-out show case performance.

“Musical history is being made. This legacy project demonstrates the sheer scale of musical and artistic talent in Limerick City. It is the starting point in terms of the development of a sustainable music industry in Limerick,” said Dr Eoin Devereux, one of the event organisers.

The Pigtown Fling is the end result of over a year of workshops, song writing, rehearsals and recording with an overall aim to develop a sustainable music industry in Limerick.

The fully booked out showcase gig will see the launch of a 17-track CD, all proceeds of which will go to the Corbett Suicide Prevention Patrol and the Learning Hub in Limerick City.
