NEW kid on the country block, David McNamee makes an appearance in Mahon’s Hotel, Irvinestown on Friday night.

One of the new young country stars that is making a name for himself on the country circuit alongside Nathan Carter and Derek Ryan, he puts on a tremendous show and is well worth hearing.

Joe Moore performs the following night.

One magic moment for this singer was at a country festival in Mirande in Gascony, in France, where David Soul of Starsky and Hutch fame was singing and introducing all the acts on stage. Soul took a big shine to Joe. He couldn’t believe the way Joe delivered a country song and asked him up again to do two more encores.

All Folk’d Up round off the weekend in Mahon’s Hotel, appearing on Sunday night.

Their sound is rooted deep in Irish Folk and Celtic Rock.

This five piece band have already made a name for themselves, touring the Length and Breadth of Ireland and now they finally embark on their first ever UK Theatre Tour, in the Spring 2016.

The band consists of banjo, guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and four vocalists all blending together to give a thick texture to the five piece sound.

As well as being leading exponents of Irish folk songs, All Folk’d Up also delve into the the depths of traditional Irish music, American folk music, some Dance, Rock and Modern Classics with an Irish twist.
