Wood Quay Summer Sessions returned this month for a series of online lunchtime concerts broadcast from Dublin City Council’s beautiful Wood Quay Venue. Over the last few weeks, the online sessions featured BigSpoon, Cassiopeia Wind Quintet, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Mick O’Brien and will finish up this week with PowPig.
Founded by Dublin City Council and presented in association with First Music Contact, Improvised Music Company, Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland and Music Network, the Wood Quay Summer Sessions allow music fans to experience an incredible mix of music from new and established traditional, jazz, contemporary and alt-rock acts.

POWPIG (July 30th)
PowPig are a dynamic band hailing from Limerick, with band members Anna Marie Rooney, Andreea Mocanu, Laura Drennan and Leah O’Donnell.
The four-piece are as comfortable swaying to the soft and pensive ‘Rosalee’ as they are screaming in their funky ear-worm ‘Birds Of Paradise’. Their most recent releases, ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘MayDay’ were debuted on a sold out Irish tour with Junior Brother.
An Irish Times “Artist of the Week”, and an Other Voices “Listener’s Choice” winner, PowPig have also supported beloved Irish acts such as Pillow Queens, Whenyoung, and Girlband for two nights in Vicar Street. The girls ended 2019 with a sold out headline in Limerick City and The Irish Times announced PowPig as one of the Top 50 People to Watch in 2020.
