The local musical talent in Laois will shine on stage at an upcoming music event to raise funds for three charities.

This exciting charity concert is set to take place in Portlaoise this month as local musicians and performers come together to put on a great night of entertainment at the Dunamaise Arts Centre.

‘People Power’ is a musical concert night of entertainment that has been organised by a young local man Fionn Marum.

Fionn is a guitarist and singer in a band ‘Nova’ and has put huge work into bringing local musicians together for this huge charity event coming up on March 22 in Portlaoise.
