Sunday June 19 will see a series of 32 gigs being held across the length and breadth of the island of Ireland in the space of seven days for a very special cause and one will be held in Bow Street.

Jarrah Folkman is a happy, bright and loving five year old boy from Cootehill, Co. Cavan who was born in 2011 with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, CVI Blindness and Refractory Epilepsy.

Jarrah’s father Ben, through his love and passion for music launched ‘Jammin for Jarrah’ as the primary fundraiser for Jarrah’s cause.

Ben and six friends will embark on an epic musical journey on Sunday June 19 around the 32 Counties of Ireland playing 32 gigs in just seven days, aiming to play in one social club or popular spot in every county on the island of Ireland.

They hope to delight each town with their raw talent building awareness and raising money for such a wonderful, deserving little boy.

It is set to be a busking bonanza of singsongs, guitars, and even some cowboy hats, and the music will be coming to Bow Street on Sunday June 19.
