The Ardhowen Theatre's livestream programme continues every Friday at 8pm. This Friday night, June 11 will see the Drunken Lullabies bring their brand of traditional folk to the Gallery Bar stage. This talented four piece from Omagh will delight audiences with a mix of original compositions along with some popular covers to suit all tastes. Using traditional instruments such as banjos, accordions, mandolin, bodhrán, whistles and guitar along with vocals and harmonies to create an energetic, foot-stomping set, blending originals and classic folk with fast paced instrumentals and covers of songs from all backgrounds. The Drunken Lullabies will bring a rousing acoustic flavour to brand new songs as well as some old favourites.

On Friday, June 18 the Ulster Orchestra will delight the Ardhowen’s classical music fans with a special pre-recorded performance. This varied programme highlighting different sections of the orchestra will include pieces by composers including Dvorák, Richard Strauss, Heber, Suc and Gabrieli. This will be streamed on the Ardhowen's Facebook page at 8pm.
