REGARDED by many as Ireland’s top concert performer, country favourite John McNicholl will return by popular demand to the Alley Theatre in Strabane in a fortnight’s time on Wednesday, December 19.
This will be John’s sixth successive Christmas concert at the venue where he received a sustained standing ovation after last year’s gig.
The star will also be supported by ‘Country Features’ and ‘The John McNicholl Band’.
John, who hails from the village of Foreglen, is undoubtedly one of Ireland’s top singers. This year he has appeared at shows all over the country as well as in England, Australia and America.
He also takes his own fan club on his sell-out tour to Nashville, Tennessee on a yearly basis.
In the past, John has also had very successful runs on Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises. He has won many awards to date, including the male vocalist of the year.
This highlights the calibre of the Foreglen singer – especially when considering the many talented artistes throughout Ireland. He has also shared the stage with many top singers, including Cliff Richard, Elton John, Ricky Skaggs, Reba McIntyre and Barry Gibb.
John, who is known as ‘Ireland’s Ambassador of Country Music’, will include many Christmas numbers and various tracks from his past albums.
The popular ‘Country Features’ will be the support act to the versatile John. The group is made up of Robbie Pearson (vocals and keyboard) and Florence Given (vocals and songwriter).
Robbie lives in Irvinestown, County Fermanagh and Florence is from Fintona, County Tyrone.
They provide music for concerts, festivals, cruises, weddings, parties and all types of functions.
They have performed regularly throughout Ireland, Scotland, Spain and the Shetland Islands.
Robbie and Florence have also won many awards down through the years, including best Irish country duo.
The John McNicholl Band will perform on its own spot, as well as providing the backing music in this special seasonal concert.
Four top class musicians make up the group and they have won many awards not only in Ireland but throughout the UK.
This concert will be a spectacular Christmas showpiece and is certainly one not to be missed!
