International Ireland Showcase

Patrick and his band were invited to showcase their music at the Association of Irish Festival Events (AOIFE) conference in November 2014.The event had around 330 delegates in attendance and there was a strong mix of music industry representatives, and bookers. Patrick ensure he set up meetings before hand with various individuals and companies, which resulted in an invitation to perform in Ireland again in October 2015.

Patrick said:

"This project has given us a great insight into other markets and we can now include it in our plan for the coming 2 years. With all these things it will take several months for the relationships we made to come to fruition.

Our future development plan is to build on the contacts we made and to try and collaborate on Welsh/Irish projects. Many of the people we met were asking us how they could gain access to Wales and also what venues and events were available in Wales. We will be talking to some Welsh Festivals to see if we can facilitate some kind of event both here in Wales and in Ireland."
