The Coors Light Open House Festival is to honour Seasick Steve on September 12 when he brings this year’s bash to a close in Custom House Square.
A silver plaque is being erected in the nearby John Hewitt pub to commemorate the American playing his first-ever solo gig there in 2005.
According to Steve: “If I hadn’t done that gig at the Open House Festival, I don’t think I’d be playing music now.”
