The Alt Blues Stage has been showcasing local Monaghan bands for several years now during The Harvest Time Blues Festival. It was setup by local musicians Ben O Sullivan, Luke Treanor, James Cadden, Darren Murtagh because it was a collective to shine a light on local talent and has been sponsored by Mark Quinn of Waveform Sound supplying stage and sound. During the last two years the stage moved from outside The Courthouse to Mc Kenna’s Bar on Dublin St and has been a huge success. This year it featured 7 bands including Litehouse, Rubenne, Dysania, Damien Sherry, The Lads, Leading Tone and The Saucehounds.
Below is a selection of photographs from this years Alternative Blues Stage in Mc Kenna’s Bar.
