Saloon Studios isn’t your average saloon. This saloon doubles as a live recording studio with state-of-the-art recording equipment, technology and sound engineering, staging “rising stars”, music legends, and rockin roll hall of famers!   Saloon Studios actively sponsored Tuatha Dea for the 2018 -2019 season and Tuatha Dea is proud to have the honor of the first live performance presented by Saloon Studios christening the debut of this unique and incredible concert facility.   Tuatha Dea’s video for their contribution to The New Bristol Sessions “Get Along Home” was filmed on location at this amazing performance and recording venue. Check out their site for more of what is going on!
