Welcome to the website for Belfast based original acoustic Songwriters The Long Stay. Now together for more than 20 years, The Long Stay write catchy melodic acoustic songs with strong lyrical content. The band draw on influences from all genres of music.  


The Long Stay are credited with being highly original and are known for doing things their own way. They have always been about the songs and the art of songwriting. They are not as well known for gigging as for writing and recording their own material. This website is designed to give you a better insight as to who The Long Stay are and what they do.
