Last year 2FM brought together Jenny Greene and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for the Standout act of Electric Picnic and a sellout night at Dublin’s 3Arena. This year 2FM The Sound of the Nation is bringing this Live 90’s Experience to the Marquee Cork on Saturday June 17th. Standing alongside Jenny Greene will be Cork based singer Gemma Sugrue and conductor Gavin Murphy.

Classics from the original set will be delivered along with unbelievably exciting new arrangements which will be a surprise we’re keeping just for the night!

They were the standout act of Electric Picnic, blowing the roof off a mobbed Rankin’sWood. During the rehearsal session, word went around Stradbally that something special was on the way and by the time of the performance the tent was packed, with queues of people outside desperate to get in. They topped the list for many as the highlight of the weekend.

Last November in response to phenomenal demand the same team came together for a full gig and it was the hottest ticket in town. Numbers like Rhythm is a Dancer, Children, Not Over Yet, Everybody’s Free and Insomnia had a packed 3Arena on their feet for the night. A whole new audience discovered the thrill of seeing and hearing an orchestra in full flight and who better to introduce them than the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, voted the World’s Favourite Orchestra in an international poll in 2015.
