COVID-19 might make it difficult to pursue a typical St. Paddy’s Day game plan, but that will not stop Flogging Molly from bringing their rowdy barroom energy to homes across the world. This St. Patrick’s Day, legendary Celtic rock band Flogging Molly will be streaming a live performance from Dublin, Ireland. Fans can tune in on March 17th at 3PM ET (12PM PT) to see the iconic Irish rockers perform a set at Whelan’s Pub. Tickets for Bushmills Irish Whiskey® Presents: Flogging Molly Live From Dublin, Ireland On St. Patrick’s Day! are available on FLOGGINGMOLLYLIVE.COM. For those attending, a recording of the event will remain available online until March 21st. This means viewers can continue to celebrate throughout the weekend! Fans should stay tuned in for a special acoustic performance after the main event. The concert will be directed by Richie Smythe and produced in partnership with Dan Simmons Presents.
Flogging Molly holds a place in history as one of few groups who have successfully merged the powerful vigor of punk rock with the spirit of traditional Irish folk music. Front man Dave King is a powerhouse. His gruff voice can be heard bellowing through a mix of distorted guitars and thundering snares to share tales of love, loss and libations. Traditional Irish instruments like the tin whistle and accordion often accompany these dive bar anthems for tunes that echo in our heads long after last call.
In support of so many musicians who are struggling during this crisis, a cut of the event’s proceeds will be donated to Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 fund, a program dedicated to supporting artists in these trying times. More information on Sweet Relief’s work can be found on https://www.sweetrelief.org/covid-19-fund.html. For fans 21 and older, Bushmills® is providing an opportunity to participate in their “First Whiskey” program. For those interested please go to www.bushmills.com for more details.
