First Music Contact presents PowPig
Lo-fi alt rock brought to you by Wood Quay Summer Sessions and First Music Contact.

PowPig are a dynamic band hailing from Limerick, comprised of Anna Marie Rooney, Andreea Mocanu, Laura Drennan and Leah O’Donnell.

The four-piece are as comfortable swaying to the soft and pensive “Rosalee” as they are screaming in their funky ear-worm “Birds Of Paradise.” Their most recent releases, “Pretty Woman” and “MayDay” were debuted on a sold out Irish tour with Junior Brother.

An Irish Times “Artist of the Week”, and an Other Voices “Listener’s Choice” winner, PowPig have also supported beloved Irish acts such as Pillow Queens, Whenyoung, and Girlband for two nights in Vicar Street. The girls ended 2019 with a sold out headline in Limerick City and The Irish Times announced PowPig as one of the Top 50 People to Watch in 2020.

Dublin City Council Presents

Wood Quay Summer Sessions return in July for a series of online lunchtime concerts broadcast from Dublin City Council’s beautiful Wood Quay Venue.
