All Select Sessions will be audio recorded and made available online for a small fee.  As well as getting to enjoy a live gig and being part of a recording session, audience members will be granted a unique and exclusive Q&A session with some of the best Irish and International music acts before the acts perform their Select Session gig. Q&A sessions will be hosted by various guest hosts from music blogs, magazines, radio etc.

Entry to all Sessions will be on a first come first served basis (no tickets will be issued).  The launch night on the 14th Aug will be free entry with the first 30 people in getting a free beer or cocktail.  The featured act on the launch night will be Youth Mass supported by No Bread and one more act to be confirmed.

Thereafter there will be a small cover charge on the door which will entitle audience members to an exclusive free download of the Select Sessions recording when it is available online as well as a night of great entertainment, exclusive drinks promotions and nibbles.

All the recorded gigs will be available for exclusive download from the session's website downloads page (  Every month two charities will be nominated and a portion of all revenue made from downloads that month will be split equally between the two nominated charities.

2Day's Tune HUCK FINN - "Before You Begin"

Today's ear candy comes courtesy of Switzerland's HUCK FINN. Before You Begin is an epic slow burner that sounds like Mark Knoplfer and Roger Waters met up with Ennio Morricone for a jam. Dark, brooding and powerful. Marvellously crafted and quite simply stunning. More please!!
