Laura Izibor, The Blizzards added to Cois Fharraige line-up

Soulful Dublin born singer Laura Izibor and perennial Irish festival favourites The Blizzards have been added to the Cois Fharraige line-up, On the Beat can exclusively reveal.

The Irish acts join an already impressive line-up consisting of Doves, The Zutons, Newton Faulkner, Noah & The Whale, The Hold Steady, Stereo MC's, Lightning Seeds, Jerry Fish and The Saw Doctors.

Izibor is hot property at the moment, having finally released her hugely anticipated debut ‘Let the Truth be Told’, which went straight in at number two in the Irish album charts.

Boasting a voice that R’n’B and soul legends would kill for, Izibor has been billed as one to watch for a long time, winning the 2FM Song Contest at the age of 15. A 'Hope for 2006 Award' at the Meteors followed, as did festival appearances.

Recent appearances with Aretha Franklin, India Arie, John Legend and counts Stevie Wonder as a fan.

The Blizzards are well known in these parts, having played here repeatedly over the last few years, garnering a huge following for their brand of pop-rock, as demonstrated on the ‘A Public Display of Affection’ and 'The Domino Effect' albums. Sure to bring in a big crowd also, which will help with ticket sales.

Tickets are on sale now for the three day festival, which takes place in Kilkee, September 11-13. Tickets are still available at the early bird price of 89 yo-yos, increasing a tenner after Sept 1.
