The Bank Holiday Weekend is still over six weeks away and we’re already getting hits on the website about the Festival. So, for all you country music fans out there, here’s the rundown of events in the Community Centre. I’m sure Creaton’s Loughglynn and The Village Inn will be hosting events too, so you should check their facebook pages.
On Saturday 5th August at 9pm the Queen of the Woodlands will be crowned.
Which of the many beautiful women of Loughglynn will be this year’s Queen is anyone’s guess. But what is certain, is that she’ll take to the floor immediately afterwards to dance to the music of Barry Kirwan. Although Barry is one of our newest Country Music acts he will be very familiar with the scene as his father is Dominic Kirwan.
On Sunday, Robert Mizzell takes the stage with his band, the Country Kings. In contrast to Barry, Robert has been singing country for twenty years and, coming from Louisiana, has an accent to die for.
Derek Ryan will close the Festival on Monday 7th. With several best selling albums to his credit, we will have to wait to hear which songs he plays for us.
Tickets to each concert are €15 each and will be available at the door.
There will be a late bar each evening.
