Hi Melin,

Thanks for such a great list. I have been enjoying many lockdown performances myself The Drop Kick Murphys gig live from Boston was particularly enjoyable. and is still available to watch online here.

Another good one is from the OH YEAH Project in Belfast. They are running regular live streams featuring local Northern Irish artists. You can check that out here

Finally, It is not musical performances but I think it is worth a mention. The Irish dancer community has also got behind the idea, a group called Fusion Fighters have encouraged Irish dancers from all over the world to take part in a video project recording their performances for 1 large compilation video.
You can check all those videos out here.

I'm finding more like these all the time so I will try and get back to post some more soon.
