There are a few Irish music gigs coming up both in the UK and Ireland over the next few months I thought I’d just list a couple of what I think are really good ones, ones definitely worth buying a ticket for and attending.
I have a ticket to the Birmingham concert, Louise Morrissey has the most beautiful voice. Louise has recently released the Johnny Logan Irish Eurovision winning song “What’s Another Year”, a really wonderful version of a fabulous song.
Michael English kicks of a huge Irish Concert Tour next month in Dublin accompanied by the legend that is Brendan Shine. Michael will be touring the UK again next Spring, I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for the tickets.
A mini tour next March in the UK by a class singer/songwriter Derek Ryan. I try to go and see Derek Ryan every time he is in Birmingham, whether it is a dance or a concert it is always a fabulous night out.
There are some big names from the Irish Country Music scene appearing at The Ryandale, Moy. Ireland appears to be full of Country Music venues and there always seems to be such great bands on. Festival season is coming to an end so hopefully a few of these will head for the UK over the Winter months.
Dancing a Dixie’s is a great night out in Stradbally, Co Laois. Every Friday evening see either established stars, up and coming stars and lesser know singers. Entrance price includes a bar meal and Dixie’s offer special nights from time to time.
Music is my magic potion, it can enhance and improve my mood tenfold, I can escape into the memories, the emotions and the sheer fun of some tracks. Are you a music lover? What is your favourite genre? What track really makes you sparkle?
