Following on from the enormous success of the inaugural FMC Tour last November, First Music Contact have put together a mouth-watering follow-up bill featuring Adebisi Shank, O Emperor and Heathers performing across two weekends in June. First Music Contact, with funding from The Arts Council’s Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme, will tour three of Ireland’s finest emerging talents around the country in an effort to enable Irish audiences to have access to Irish headline acts for the very reasonable price of €15.00 plus charges.
FMC work with artists at all levels both at home and on the international stage through their various projects, so they saw an opportunity to tour some standout Irish talent around the country in an unusual mix and give audiences a unique opportunity to celebrate home grown success!
