The Vals, The Dandy Horses & Peter McVeigh set for Ethiopiad fundraiser

dandyhorsesThe fundraising event in June features three excitingly different Belfast-based acts, all of whom have gigged internationally over the past 12 months.

Inspired by a recent series of gigs in Addis Ababa at the request of the Irish Embassy; members of The Dandy Horses set out about organising this fundraising event for Ethiopiaid which has several projects targeting the most vulnerable in Ethiopia’s capital city.

Headlined by psychedelic pop band, ‘The Vals’ this will be their homecoming gig following a recent European tour with Paul Weller. This will no doubt contribute to an electric atmosphere in an evening celebrating local original music, with all proceeds going to the charity Ethiopiad.

The evening will be MC’d by the comedian Sean Hegarty. Sean is a one-liner comic, famous for his sharp wit & hilarious jokes. Event organiser Joanne Cassidy states that ‘this is a night not to be missed especially because of the quality of the acts, all of whom have kindly donated their time and efforts for such a great cause.’

The Vals, The Dandy Horses and Peter McVeigh will perform at the Black Box, Belfast on Friday 19th June 2015. Donations are £5 and it kicks off at 8pm.
