April is finally here and that means Easter is coming – look no further on how to celebrate the Easter holidays than with Derek Ryan & his band!

Singer/ songwriter, Derek Ryan had recently released his brand new single and first single of 2015, ‘Cry’. Taken from the number one album, The Simple Things’, the self-penned serenade has already been touching the hearts of concert-goers around the country, and has been highly requested since the album release.

The Carlow man shows no signs of slowing down in his career, and will continue with his Irish concert and dance tour before heading off to the UK later this month in huge demand! The Tour includes a mix of old favourites, classic country and Derek’s own original material, so watch out when the award-winning country idol comes to a town near you!


This weekend, the “Entertainer of the Year” will be celebrating the Easter holidays in style, and kicking off the long weekend with not one, but two gigs in Ballymena this Saturday! Derek will be appearing in Camerons Music Store from 3.30pm, before moving onto the Tullyglass House Hotel for a huge night of dancing! Easter Sunday, Derek and the band will be bringing the award-winning tour to McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris, before finishing up the weekend on Easter Monday in The Valley Hotel, Fivemiletown.

If you are planning on joining Derek this weekend, evening dances are expected to be in huge demand, so get down early to avoid disappointment, the last thing we want is for anyone to ‘Cry’!

Remember ‘Cry’ is now available for download on iTunes!
