This years’ event features a fantastic line up of artists performing in different venues around the village. From free gigs in the bars to exciting star events in the community hall, it’s going to be a blast! Here’s a quick lowdown of our exciting programme.

JOE DAVITT will be opening the shindig in the hall on Saturday night, 3rd June, followed by special guest LOUISE MORRISSEY and the PAUDIE COFFEY BAND.

Joe is a singer / songwriter and multi instrumentalist from Co. Wexford, Ireland. He enjoys touring Europe and is sure to keep the dance floor busy with his young and vibrant band.

Louise is from Bansha and her touring has seen her play venues as far afield as the USA, Denmark and the Lebanon. She has a huge following and is one of the finest female voices currently performing around the Irish and UK country music scene.
