Ash to set Stendhal stage alight thumbnailNorthern Irish legends Ash will be centre stage at Stendhal Festival of Art, Limavady on Friday August 11.

STENDHAL has revealed the first portion of the musical line-up for this year's instalment of the multi-award winning festival.
The eclectic mix of genres and styles showcased at Ballymully Cottage Farm, Limavady will be headlined by Northern Irish legends Ash on Friday August 11.
The Downpatrick rockers are one of the most popular and successful acts to ever hail from Northern Ireland, bursting onto the scene with their seminal debut album '1977', an album which contained classics such as 'Girl from Mars,' 'Goldfinger', 'Angel Interceptor' and 'Oh Yeah'. The album hit number one in the British Album Charts and spawned four top 20 hits for the fledgling outfit.
Since then, their career has spanned over 20 years and Ash have produced 18 top 40 singles, 2 UK Number 1 albums ('1977' and 'Free All Angels') and a further three albums which all charted in the top 10.
From one legendary act to another, Irish folk hero Sharon Shannon will also be taking to the Stendhal stage this summer.
Sharon has quite literally seen and done it all in the Irish Folk scene. She has played on stage with the likes of the Waterboys and Christy Moore while her 1991 self-titled debut album remains the highest selling folk album in Irish history.
Granted a lifetime achievement award at the 2009 Meteor Awards, Sharon has attained legendary status and everyone involved with Stendhal is very proud to welcome her to Limavady in the summer.
