Nathan Carter is the brightest young star to hit Ireland in recent years. Nathan was born in Liverpool in 1990 and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots. Nathan was born to perform and at the tender age of four he began to learn to play the accordion, in a few short years he went on to become the head chorister in the Liverpool Boys Choir, touring the world and even singing for the Pope. He made regular trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil s and resulted in medals for the accordion and for singing. This resulted him in becoming a member of the Liverpool Ceili band where he played the accordion and piano and in no time at all he began to play solo gigs in London and Liverpool along with the occasional show in Ireland. On a trip to Donegal in 2009 he met up with songwriter John Farry, who was hugely impressed with Nathan s ability and in a few short months his dream of performing with his own band became a reality. Since then Nathan has recorded 3 albums with a 4th of the way, won 18 awards at ceremonies in Ulster, Leinster, Munster and Connaught. He is packing out venues and ballrooms all across Ireland and has become one of the must see Irish acts. Do not miss your opportunity to see Nathan Carter Live!!!

Bagatelle are an Irish rock band that first formed in August 1978.They are known for their popular pop hits such as "Second Violin", "Leeson Street Lady" and "Summer in Dublin", their best known song. The band formed in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. Fellow Irish musician Bono commented on the impact that Bagatelle had on U2 in the early days of their career. Larry Mullen, of the same band, once famously said that he used to call them "Baga-Money", in reference to their fame, and that he wished that his band could be as successful as Bagatelle. Bagatelle shared stages with artists such as Bob Marley, Don McLean and Jose Feliciano. Their albums were produced by Phil Coulter and the late Gus Dudgeon, who also produced for David Bowie and Elton John. Bagatelle appeared on the "Self Aid" concert in the mid 1980s with U2 and Van Morrison. When the original Bagatelle re-formed the band in 1992, Polygram, their record label, decided to release The Best of Bagatelle and Liam Reilly, and followed this with Bagatelle Gold. The band returned to touring in 2010 and released an album of cover versions entitled Under The Covers. Although the band never attained international acclaim, they remain a hugely popular band in their home nation of Ireland. However, the hit "Second Violin" was such a success in Uruguay that today it remains popular.

Des Bishop One Day You'll Understand Des is old enough now to know that when his Mom used her favourite expression, "one day you will understand", that she was often correct. However, sometimes she was just hiding from having to explain the complexities of life. What a great metaphor for the confusing world we live in; from Trump to Isis, Facebook feeds to conspiracy theories and the ever-confusing battle of the sexes. Through laughter, Des attempts to make sense of the world today and life in general

The Furey's have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 38 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the Furey's "Green Fields of France". Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin's National Concert Hall. The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the Furey's. The Furey's are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly. Their emotive songs stir many emotions....tears and laughter, sadness and joy.
