Hungry Grass lead the music at Unity Day this Sunday

With a decade of festival gigging across Europe behind them, the stage is set for Hungry Grass to headline at Unity Day in Ravenscourt Park… the celebration of diversity on Sunday 10 June.

The afternoon’s event, the showpiece of the nine-day HF ArtsFest celebration of culture in the borough, begins at noon.

Hungry Grass play Irish trad, rock and folk, and are fronted by Peter Coughlan on vocals and guitar, dubbed the finest Irish trad singer in the capital.

The band have built an enthusiastic following for their high-energy, dynamic foot-stomping celtic sound, with John Gaughan on bass and bodhran, Mark Conyard on fiddle and the classically trained Christian Vaughan Spruce on piano and accordion.

Hungry Grass have performed at hundreds of events and festivals across Europe and the USA. Last year they played for the first time in Russia, but they have also performed in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Italy and France.

View full details of all the events in the 2018 Hammersmith & Fulham ArtsFest, which runs from until Sunday.

An inclusive, open arts event for all, the festival features more than 200 events from performance art to literature, visual art to film. Many of the events are free to attend.

Unity Day at Ravenscourt Park runs from noon to 6.30pm on Sunday, and also features a Unity Tree, for displaying stories in words and pictures, a circus and workshops.
