Jerry Fish for Waterford Festival of Food

Jerry Fish is renowned as much for his showmanship as he is for his music, so festival goers can expect an electric atmosphere. Fish is a carnival creator, circus ringmaster – complete with Vaudeville moustache – a playwright, singer, songwriter, and poet. Known for his genre-bending style, he brings great music and showmanship to every event.

There will also be a local flavour to the music on the night with support act UNDER STARLINGS, an alternative rock group from Waterford who bring their own touch of euphoria and escapism.

The ticket price includes access to the event space located at the carpark on Shandon Street, Dungarvan . Food and drink purchased at the event is a separate cost.
