The Bedford Townhouse & Café on Bedford Row is delighted to officially launch Live from The Parlour, a fortnightly series of live music streams, which is kicking off this Saturday 20th March at 8pm on The Bedford Instagram channel.
Live from The Parlour was created to provide local artists with a space to perform and showcase their talents from the comfort of The Parlour Room at The Bedford Townhouse. The Parlour Room is a hideaway lounge space within the Townhouse and is surrounded with stories of Bedford Row and Limerick over the last 200 years, making it a great Limerick space for Limerick artists to avail of. The event will be operated within the current safety guidelines and will be run every fortnight, starting this Saturday 20th March at 8pm via Instagram Live.
For the inaugural event on 20th March, The Bedford have teamed up with the talented MEGA-Trad, a trio originally from Clare and based in Limerick who play traditional Irish Music with a twist. The band describe their style as "Big, rich, foot-stompin', headbanging Irish Traditional music saturated with deep bass, transcendent FX and pulsing beats.” So a feast for the senses awaits for all those tuning in.
Denise & Peter Brazil, Proprietors of The Bedford commented “Live from the Parlour is a very exciting project for The Bedford. Like so many hospitality businesses we have missed welcoming guests over the last few months and wanted to find a way to stay engaged with our local community and bring some life back to our Townhouse. We are looking forward to bringing The Bedford and great live music in to people’s homes via Live from The Parlour over the coming months.”
While The Bedford Townhouse remains closed due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, The Bedford Café remains open for takeaway and click and collect from Wednesday to Saturday, 8am-4pm.
Live from The Parlour kicks off this Saturday 20th March at 8pm on The Bedford Instagram channel. Any artists interested in taking part can contact The Bedford on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note artists must be based with a 5K radius of Bedford Row per the current Government guidelines.
