With a vibrant live music scene, this programme showcases local talent with live music contributions. Bands are also invited to host and present their own musical influences. Athlone has a flourishing music scene and Live Wires explores how and where local bands and musicians can display their talents. We also look at the younger up and coming bands and provide a platform for them to perform to the public.
