The Big Gig to help fund ATLANTIC

‘Atlantic’ is a feature documentary following the fortunes of fishing communities across the North Atlantic affected by the huge increase in oil activity off their coasts.

On both sides of the Atlantic, oil and gas frontiers are opening up, pushing deeper in to the Atlantic and further north into the Arctic. Coastal communities in Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland are facing the dilemma choosing between traditional fishing and more lucrative oil and gas income.

This project is being financed with individual contributions (they have already around 14.000 €) and to support the production of the film a series of events are taking place in Galway and Dublin. Here, this Wednesday, May 28th in Monroe’s, from 8:30 pm, we can enjoy a fundraising concert.

Tickets are 10 euros and you can listen to 4 bands:

  • Mikey & The Scallywags,
  • My Fellow Sponges,
  • The Deans
  • We Banjo Three

Listen to some of the songs they will be playing and  if you want to cooperate now, please visit the website of the project:
