Co-operation Ireland, the leading peace-building charity across the island of Ireland, is excited to introduce ‘X The Waves’ (Cross The Waves) - a virtual music event taking place on Jan 16 2021. 

Through this shared music experience, the US chapter of the charity aims to extend its reach in building awareness, bringing together the Irish diaspora and all those who support the mission of Co-operation Ireland.

Ireland is renowned globally for its arts scene, with music so often the bridge for unity and collaboration.  ‘X The Waves’ will bring together artists from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, showcasing the diversity of arts and culture in Ireland today.

The show will include Alex Gough, Brigid Mae Power, Gemma Bradley, Jordan Run, Laoise, Leo Miyagee, Rosa Nutty, RuthAnne, and SertOne. Together these talented and celebrated artists represent a range of music genres including hip-hop, rap, folk, pop, dance, and indie. Illustrations by artist and designer Shane Cluskey will also feature throughout the event.

This event is being sponsored by Rémy Cointreau, Teneo, Demeter Group, and Breakthru Beverage Group.
