One of the quirkier events will be The Shop Window Sessions in Cahill Brothers window at 64 Hill Street, on Thursday the 27th of September from 2pm to 4pm. Legendary man in black Mickey Doran will leather into his highly polished act, lace-d with fun quips no doubt and perform classics from The Shadows Apache to The Fields of Athenry to Guitar Boogie to Bob Marley to Yakity Yack and who knows he might even have a blast at These boots were made for walking or Blue Suede Shoes – and of course Declan McChesney has these in stock! Commenting on the upcoming festivities Declan said, “I’m looking forward to seeing Mickey’s A-Doran fans who shoe-d appear at my window in their droves.” Other events happening through the week include a walking tour of Newry, The Big Session at The Railway Bar, a Sports lecture at Newry Museum and a “Zombie Parade” in The Phoenix, Pre Parade Party in Bellinis and many more. The festival’s main day will be on Saturday 29th September with a Crafts Fair and entertainment galore for people of all ages at Marcus Square from 10am to 3pm.
