Live in Adamsons Bar

Ok so you've been watching films all day, you've had your wee snacks, discussions and critiques. It's definitely time for a drink a dance and a break. . . . .and we can help you there.

Below are the details of the 2016 CFF Festival Club. You can expect similar this October!

Opening night: DARAGH SLACKE

Well-known blues guitarist Daragh Slacke will open the Festival Club at Clones Film Festival before joining renowned Cavan funk band, Blutack on their way to the Cork Jazz Festival. Come watch the sweat drip from the walls as he burns through a maelstrom of Celtic rock and blues. Turn up the radio.

Friday: The Thin Thieves

The Thin Thieves are a 5-piece band hailing from Cavan playing music well beyond their years. Coming at you with 60s vibes and 70s cool and a few current trends to keep it fresh. They say rock and roll is dead. The Thin Thieves say: go suck a lemon!

Saturday: Paul Sherry 

Paul Sherry released his debut album “To the bitter end” in 2007 and played all over Ireland on the festival and gig circuit with his trio. His up tempo blues rock shows were a mix of guitar driven licks and rust and dust sounding vocals from top to bottom. His new album Songstone turned a new corner to a more songbased side with great melodies and a funky pop rock rhythm section. With the combination of the two albums and a few original takes on cover songs this is a gig that takes you in all directions right to the end.

Closing night: Sing Along Social

The Sing Along Social is a zero commitment choir hosted by singing enthusiast Aoife McElwain. You don’t need to be able to sing, you don’t need to practice and you don’t really need to know the words because we supply you with lyric books. For the Clones Film Festival closing night party, the Sing Along Social will host a Halloween Sing Along Special featuring Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Talking Head’s Psycho Killer, the magic of Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks, and much more. Find out about the Sing Along Social at facebook.com/singalongsocial or on Twitter @singalongsocial.

Closing night: Nialler9 DJ set

Niall Byrne runs the highly-regard Nialler9 website, a first port of call for new music for the last ten years in Ireland. He also broadcasts every Thursday evening on Dublin station TXFM, curates events and DJs regularly around Dublin city.
