Prison Love bring their barnstorming bluegrass, outrageous old time and confounding Cajun music to the intimate surroundings of Whelans’ Upstairs Stage.

The band is one of the top exponents of traditional American music in Ireland and has graced stages across the UK, Europe and the US. Prison Love never fail to impress and have received numerous accolades and rave reviews along the way, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Vassar Clements, Dirk Powell and The Fog Horn String Band.

This is the finest musical-moonshine this side of the big pond. Doesn’t matter if you’re dancing or listening, come aboard and take a swig of some real deal American roots music.
