Foxford Church of Ireland welcomes well known country and gospel singer, James Kilbane, for an evening of country hymns and songs of faith on Sunday March 6 at 7pm.
The event is being organised to help with restoration and maintenance costs needed for the church, and also to strengthen ecumenicalties. Built in 1801, this historical church has been an important part of the local history of Foxford for the past 215 years. Time has taken its toll and continued work is necessary to keep the church in a usable state for local parishioners.
On this special solo evening, Kilbane will sing many of his popular country and gospel favourites, as well as explaining some of the stories around many of his popular songs, his life and faith. He has just returned from performing in Florida and is now doing a number of dates across the country. It is more than a decade since his appearance on You’re A Star in 2003, when he sang the hymn "How Great Thou Art" at his audition.
Since then Kilbane’s work has continued to follow in a strong Christian vein that reaches many people in different walks of life at home and abroad. The evening of entertainment at Foxford Church has a €10 admission donation on the door. Doors open at 6.30pm with the event starting at 7pm. Some reflections will also be given by Rev Andrea Wills.
