Kings of Country runs at the Radisson Blu Hotel Sligo this March 19 and 20. Each night is headlined by a different artist with a sterling line-up from the style.

On March 19, Mike Denver’s joined on the bill by Crystal Swing and Annemarie O’Riordan while March 20’s set list will be sung out by Nathan Carter and band, Gerry Gutherie, Johnny Brady and the Wee Amigos. More acts are to be announced for both nights.

While the gig’s a little away from home the local broadcaster KCLR has teamed up with a North West radio station to arrange a package.

A bus will transport fans from Kilkenny to Sligo for two nights accommodation with breakfast and access to both gigs. There’ll also be two nights dinner with celebrity chef of TV3 & Ocean FM fame, Joe Shannon.

Punters can enjoy shopping excursions, tours of Yeats Country, use of leisure facilities, golf and spa facilities.

Meanwhile fans of country at home can catch Tomm Dowling on air every Monday to Wednesday from 9pm while the legendary Johnny Barry continues his show each Thursday to Sunday from 10pm.
