Paul Dunworth plays the final Live from The Parlour

Blues and folk musician Paul Dunworth Live from The Parlour gig in aid of Limerick Suicide Watch

The Bedford Townhouse & Café will be hosting their final gig in the Live from The Parlour music series this Saturday, May 29th at 8pm with blues and folk musician Paul Dunworth. To celebrate the success of the series, The Bedford are asking all viewers to support local charity Limerick Suicide Watch and will be adding a fundraising link to this weekend’s live stream.

Live from The Parlour was launched back in March to provide local artists with a space to perform and showcase their talents from the comfort of The Parlour Room at The Bedford Townhouse. With the challenges of the restrictions over the last 18 months, musicians across the country have been starved of the opportunity to play to audiences and Live from The Parlour provided a little oasis to artists during these times.





Over the last 3 months, The Bedford has hosted 5 Live from The Parlour Acts with artists including, MEGA-Trad, Rob O’Doherty, In The Black, Liam Lynch and The Shaking. Paul Dunworth will be the sixth and final act in the series. His unique sound of folk and blues will be a fantastic high note to finish the series on. The live streams of gigs to date have been saved to The Bedford’s IGTV page and have received over 1500 views; showing that audiences are missing live music as much as musicians are missing them!

Commenting on the live music series, Denise & Peter Brazil, Proprietors of The Bedford said “We have been blown away by the response to Live from the Parlour since its launch in March. It has been our pleasure to host such a variety of musicians from across the city and county and to provide them with a space to perform. This event has only reaffirmed what we already knew – that Limerick has a wealth of musical talent and we want to thank all the artists who took part and look forward to seeing them back on live music stages in the not too distant future. We have really enjoyed having the lights back on in our Townhouse and bringing such great music in to people’s homes over the last few months.”

As Live from The Parlour draws to a close, The Bedford are asking local audiences who have enjoyed the Live from The Parlour gigs to provide their support to local charity, Limerick Suicide Watch. “We have been thrilled with the reaction to the live streams to date. For anyone that has enjoyed the live streams and recordings, we would ask them for a little help in return in supporting local Limerick charity, Limerick Suicide Watch and the great work that they do in patrolling the bridges in Limerick City.”

The finale will be streamed live on The Bedford Instagram channel (
