We are so happy & excited to announce some of our line up for this years The Garden Sessions 2012. Acts such as Hello Moon, Neil Hannon, A Band Called Wanda, The Mandolas, The Gandhis, The Walls, Daithi, I'm Your Vinyl, Marc O'Rielly, Winterking,Katie Kim, Ronan O'Snodaigh, Daniel Martin Moore ...

In aid of the Offaly Hospice, we gather a motley crew of talented, gifted and masterful musicians, some who are established and some on their way to a 'coup de grace'!

Hospice Care is when the focus has shifted from treatment aimed at cure to ensuring quality of life. It seeks to relieve the physical symptoms of illness while equally addressing the person's emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs.

The Garden Sessions 2012 will take place on Friday the 7th & Saturday 8th of September.

This amazing affair takes place over two days in the beautiful setting of the rose walled garden of The Chestnut, Birr, Co. Offaly. Tickets are 25 euro each night , 40 euro for 2 nights, pre book your tickets on the The Garden Sessions facebook page. Limited tickets available, capacity 100 persons.

This intimate music experience has, over the years, had the pleasure to indulge in the intonations of many a gifted musician to name a few. Mundy, Freddie White, Declan O'Rourke, Fred, Q, Ger Wolfe, Roesy, The Pale. Some of these acts generously gave their time to record on The Garden Sessions CD which made a healthy profit and donation to The Irish Hospice Foundation. Some of last year's line up include We Cut Corners, Cathy Davey, Whipping Boy, Windings, My Veroa, Jennifer Evans, R.S.A.G.
