+ many more
Live each night at

Due to the current covid-19 crisis, DeBarras live music venue in Clonakilty, West Cork, has unfortunately closed up for the time being. However, the music lives on in DeBarras Sitting Room to Sitting Room Sessions, happening live on their Facebook page, at 9:30pm every night, and 8pm on Sundays (GMT+1).

DeBarras Sitting Room to Sitting Room Sessions kicked off last Tuesday 24th March, and due to a very positive response, the sessions will continue through the month of April.

Ray Blackwell from DeBarras said: “For the strange times we find ourselves in…. some of our favourite musicians will be bringing the music from their Sitting Room to yours. They will recreate DeBarras (or a DeBarras vibe) in their own home and perform a gig and we will live stream the performance on our Facebook page. Stay cool out there! We can do this.”
