Forming part of Liverpool Irish Festival, From Here To There is a one night collaborative effort, featuring musical acts from the UK and Ireland.

During the Festival’s 2020 online incarnation, Cork City based company, Unemployable Promotions compiled an online showcase of their roster, entitled From Here, featuring live performances from the city’s iconic venue, Coughlans. Liverpool Irish Festival organised for the Cork company to team up with well-known Liverpool based promoters and label, Mellowtone. The two shared each other’s events, with a view to continuing to work together in 2021.

This year the two promoters will work together, IRL (‘in real life’!), here in Liverpool’s District. Featuring performances from two great Cork City based acts, Sara Ryan and Míde Houlihan (along with their bands), as well as from local favourites, Karen Turley and Seafoam Green (pictured) from the Mellowtone roster.

The event is the second in what promises to create an ongoing relationship between Unemployable Promotions and Liverpool Irish Festival, bringing a taste of Cork City’s thriving original music scene, and showcasing its acts alongside some of the best local artists, in a way that compliments both.

“There’s a great connection between Cork and Liverpool, and actually a lot similarities that you’ll find in the people” says Unemployable co-owner, Michael Grace. “We started coming to Liverpool years ago, originally following our football loyalties, and ended up making some friends, and falling in love with the city. A huge part of that was the music. We’re delighted to have the chance to showcase some of our acts at the Festival and we’re really looking forward to collaborating with Mellowtone again, who have been so great since we were first introduced”.

This event is held in partnership with Unemployable PromotionsMellowtone and District.
