2FM Live with Jenny Greene & the RTÉ Concert Orchestra

2FM Live with Jenny Greene & the RTÉ Concert Orchestra became the fastest selling music gig in Galway International Arts Festival’s 40-year history in 2017, with their Festival Big Top gig selling out in under an hour.

The unlikely collaborators went on to provide a sensational End of Festival party, tearing the roof off the Festival Big Top, with their Dance Anthems set performed live by Jenny and RTÉ’s incredible 48-piece Concert Orchestra.

Their return to Galway International Arts Festival 2018 will come as welcome news to the legion of fans who danced that memorable night away to club classic hits such as Silence, Adagio for Strings, Everybody’s Free, Insomnia and Missing.

With the amazing Gemma Sugrue back on vocals and Concert Orchestra conductor Gavin Murphy once again at the helm, Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh are thrilled to have this concert close out the biggest Festival Big Top line-up to date.
