HWCH have announced that the winner of the inaugural Conor Walsh Memorial Bursary is Dundalk act Elephant.

Earlier this year,  an alumni and friend of the festival, Conor Walsh from Mayo, died suddenly.

All bands participating this year were asked to vote for the act who most embodies Conor’s talent. Elephant will now be awarded €2,500 toward a recording or touring bill.

The panels and discussions were recorded and are now available to listen to here.

Topics include How to apply for a US performance Visa, 21st Century Labels, a conversation with Chris Douridas and many more.

HWCH returns on 28, 29 and 30 September 2017.
