Sligo's Martime Village Rosses Point is hosting the Annual International Festival Shanty Festival, a fantastic festival of songs and music of the sea.
The event attracts a great range of both Irish and overseas performers who fill the village with the sounds of the sea. It aims to celebrate the maritime heritage of Rosses Point, while promoting the lifesaving work of the R.N.L.I, along with bringing the songs and traditions of seafaring to a wide audience.
Other elements include literary events, boat races, swims, duck races, concerts and free music performances on the streets and in the pubs.
Come along and join in - add a little salt to your taste in music.
