THE VIBE FOR PHILO
line up tba
Part Celebration, part Wake, part Convention, the Vibe for Philo is an annual commemoration of all aspects of Phil Lynott’s career, from more obscure outings such as the Three Musketeers to the classic Live and Dangerous era. From it’s humble roots in a pub’s backroom it has grown into an internationally recognized event drawing an audience from three continents and has become a mecca for anyone with an interest in Phil Lynott or Thin Lizzy.
Past participants read like a whos who of Irish music, with numerous international acts also gracing the Vibe Stage.
Virtually every guitar-slinger to strap on a Les Paul and ride the Lizzymobile has performed, and many of Lynott’s old bands from Orphanage to Grand Slam have reformed for one-off performances. The full reunion of Thin Lizzy on the 10th anniversary was a particular highlight. Philomena Lynott (Philip’s mother), Eric Bell, Brian Robertson, Brian Downey, Scott Gorham, John Sykes, Midge Ure, Jim Fitzpatrick, Brush Shiels – the list goes on….
The showcase slot has produced some memorable performances including then unknowns such as Damien Dempsey, Leanne Hart, Conor McGouran and Paddy Casey.
Taking it’s cue from the late 60’s/early 70s ‘Vibes’ or ‘Happenings’ it celebrates how Lynott easily strode the worlds of Folk, Punk, Rock, and beyond, and mixes rare video footage, dance, and poetry, with interpretive performances and the best tributes on the planet. It has inspired similar shows in London, New York, Stockholm, Tokyo, LA, Copenhagen, and other cities around the world.
