:: Rory Nellis

BELFAST singer-songwriter Rory Nellis returns with another Sanitiser Session tonight live on Facebook from 9pm, which will find him playing an hour's worth of his own tunes – hopefully including recently written ode to the dimly remembered before times/the 1990s, Video Shop – and some covers. Get involved at FB.com/rorynellis and don't forget to tip – all donations go to NHS Charities Together.

:: Cocoons with Matt McGinn and Cormac Neeson

LOCAL musicians Matt McGinn and Cormac 'The Answer' Neeson continue to hosting their series of virtual gigs on Saturday nights using Facebook Live, featuring musical guests from around the world alongside their own performances. Tomorrow evening's line-up features Joan 'the Irish Beth Orton' Mceldowney who is based in the UAE, soulstress Katrina Turner from Ballycastle and Rostrevor via Meath singer/songwriter/trombonist Matthew Benson. Tune in from 7pm at FB.com/groups/cocoons.

:: Andy that's in The Bonnevilles

THE Bonnevilles' livestreaming Saturday night entertainments continue tomorrow night with frontman Andy McGibbon Jr once again hunkering down at his St Quarantine blues bunker to perform hits from their back catalogue. Tomorrow evening's set will feature an entire Bonnevilles LP played front-to-back – but which one? We're hoping for Arrow Pierce My Heart just so we can hear Who Do I Have To Kill To Get Out of Here? again.

Find out at 8pm at FB.com/thebonnevillesUK.
