Friday 19TH of April is another great night of live music at Shortt's as we welcome back Ruffus, a three piece Pop/Rock band based in Dublin Ireland. Formed in 2000 from the ashes of a duo called Shade 20, the lads have spent the last 10 years on the road gigging up and down the country to become one of Ireland's top cover bands.

Mack Fleetwood, Europe's premier tribute to the super-group Fleetwood Mac, make a return visit to Forum Waterford on Saturday, 27 April, after a fantastic debut show at the same venue last summer. Mack Fleetwood will bring you on a magical musical journey from the Peter Green blues era to the multi-platinum selling Anglo/American band that still tour today.

When Peter Green left the band, Mike Fleetwood & John McVie kept the show on the road, being joined first by Christine Perfect (later McVie) and then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. These three talented and prolific songwriters
