A spokesperson for Foyle Folk Festival said they were over the moon ‘Pørts’ were playing and said it will be an opportunity for music fans to hear songs from their debut album.

“We’re delighted to have ‘Pørts’ headline this event, as they haven’t yet featured at the fest itself. It is their last local show of the year and they will be debuting new tunes from their first album, which is due out early next year.

“Malojian has also been putting finishing touches to his second album and The Ard Ri Band will be recording a second album early next year. Rebecca Mulhern, who is opening up on the night was one of the participants at this year’s Foyle Folk Workshops that took place in the Nerve Centre this month.”
