Guinness Live & Rising, is a new initiative celebrating Irish pubs across the country, showcasing the role they play as homes and hosts of incredible experiences in music, food, sport and the arts.
Guinness Live & Rising launches with an initial 12-month programme of pop-up music, food and sports events in pubs across the country. The programme has been specially designed to showcase the unique creativity, culture and craic that can only be found in an Irish pub.
Erica said: “I’m thrilled to work with Guinness to bring the next Guinness Live & Rising event to Rearden’s Bar in Cork, which has a special place in my heart. Drawing inspiration from my roots, guests will be fully immersed in my world for one night only, with nineties R&B karaoke, live performances, and incredible American cookout style food, all beautifully blended with the vibrancy of Guinness.”
The series was launched in epic fashion by global superstar Dermot Kennedy who performed in the Guinness Storehouse on May 2, with the special evening hosted by Tara. The next day Dermot surprised fans with special pop-up pub performances in The Long Hall, Devitt’s and Toner’s where he was joined by Aimee, Somebody’s Child and Niamh Bury.
Now, Guinness Live & Rising will showcase further unique collaborations with new and established talent from the worlds of music, food, sport, and the arts over the next 12 months in pop-up pub events.
