The RocktoberFest takes place this weekend. Here are the acts so far.

Michael Thomas

The American played a great set at the BeatlesFest. Read about him here Michael Thomas. He’ll play a mixture of Dylan and Beatles songs along with some other Rock and Pop classics like the Stones’ Paint It Black.


Bulrush is comprised of two great young Derry musicians, Ryan O’Dochertaigh and Kevin Brown. They are among the top acts in Derry and really showed what they could do on the Sunday night of the DylanFest in Rosatos. They’ll play a mixture of songs this time but with plenty of Dylan songs.

Paddy McLaughlin

Paddy is one of Moville’s finest musicians and introduced two generations of Movillians to Dylan and his music. He taught most of the young musicians about the area how to play.


A 3-piece that play regularly at the Sean Ti. Kevin is a huge fan. They will be playing all cover songs.

Cavanagh Brothers

One of the most popular acts in the area, they always draw a crowd.
