“DEREK RYAN” who has been named the BEST country performer for 2014 is coming to Armagh on “SATURDAY 31st MAY 2014” for an open Air Concert and Dance at The Armagh Athletic Grounds. Making this concert different from any other is a special guest appearance from the beautiful and very talented “SHARON SHANNON”.

Sharon Shannon defines casual brilliance, the multi-platinum; award-winning accordion player has enjoyed success both as a solo artist and with the band, The Waterboys. This Sat 31st May Sharon will perform with Derek for his new single “Hold on to your Hat”along with a few of her signature hits.

Derek Ryan’s rise to become one of the biggest stars of Irish Country music has been phenomenal.  In just over two years few artists have made such an impact on the Irish country scene like the Co. Carlow singer songwriter.  Having played to sell out concert audiences around the world with D-Side, the young heartthrob has brought a distinctive fresh sound to Irish country.

The Athletic Grounds seats almost 5,000 people and Derek is sure to have everyone rocking from the rafters! The Doors open from 6pm with licensed bars supplied by Basil Sheils and food outlets throughout the stadium. Following last year’s success, we promise a great night and MC for the night is the wee man from Strabane, BBC Radio Ulster’s Hugo Duncan with supporting group “Big Pat and his Band”.

Tickets available now from the Armagh GAA county website; www.armaghgaa.net , the Armagh County Office, Basil Sheils (info@basilsheils.com) and outlets across Armagh.
