Join the fun with an amazing weekend featuring the very best country music bands!
The west of Ireland’s love affair with country music has prompted two great shows to join forces for one weekend at the Royal Theatre in Castlebar to give fans a weekend of live country music featuring a concert with James Kilbane and Friends on Friday, May 11 and all night dancing featuring Jimmy Buckley on Saturday, May 12.
On Friday, May 11 James Kilbane brings his full band for his Gravel and Grace album country concert at 8pm. Through his many concerts James gives support and opportunity to voluntary organisations to share in his events and on this occasion the event is in association with Western Care and is supported by CBE Claremorris. James is about to embark on a run of spring and summer shows across the country and is delighted to be returning to the prestigious Castlebar venue with his many well known country songs.
Dancing on Saturday, May 12 will kick off with Riverdeep from 9pm to 11.30pm, followed by Jimmy Buckley live on stage from 11.30pm to 1.30am, so a full night of country dancing is guaranteed. Jimmy Buckley is certainly living up to his name of Ireland’s top entertainer, and he has the award to prove it. Jimmy was awarded the Best Artist of 2010 Award in a star-studded ceremony organised by the Sunday World newspaper. Tickets for shows only are €15 each and can be purchased from the Royal Theatre box office on 0818 300 000 or 094 9023111. Further information is available from www.royaltheatre.ie
