Celtic Country UK Autumn Tour 2018
A celebration of the best Irish and Scottish artists in one impressive show!
Celtic Country includes The New Seekers’ Eve Graham, and Dominic Kirwan, Ireland’s international recording star with Ireland’s newest Country star, his son Barry Kirwan. From Scotland is the fabulously talented special guest, Scotland’s international recording artist … from BBC TV’s The Voice … Colin Chisholm.
Eve is the voice on Coca-Cola’s famous ‘hill top’ commercial – the most successful TV advertising campaign of all time. The song ‘I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing’ subsequently became a worldwide number one hit and earned her group, The New Seekers, a coveted Grammy nomination.
In 1990, Eve recorded Coca-Cola’s ‘hilltop reunion’ commercial as a solo artiste. Eve’s distinctive voice is easily recognisable on the original recordings of such hits as ‘Look What They Done To My Song, Ma’, ‘Nickel Song’, ‘Beautiful People’, ‘Circles’, ‘Never Ending Song of Love’, ‘The Greatest Song I’ve Ever Heard’, including the iconic American song ‘Free to Be, You and Me’, and the most successful of all “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing’.
Eve has been widely respected in the music business over the years as a ‘singers’ singer’, admired by rock stars, jazz singers and folk singers. Her wealth of experience makes eve a unique entertainer. To quote the legendary songwriter and performer Tom Paxton – “Eve relates to her audience and makes them her friends … allow me to more over and make room for you in her fan club!’
Winning a talent show brought Dominic to the attention of Mick Clerkin and Ritz records when he recorded the “The Green Fields of Ireland” as part of the prize. In January 1989 the contract was signed and after a concert tour with Philomena Begley the debut album “Try A Little Kindness” was released. Dominic performs a vibrant mix of classic country, a hint of rock and roll, a sprinkling of a ballad or two; a touch of a standard with just a spot of an inspirational classic. He is described as the ‘ultimate entertainer’, at ease with songs such as “Like Father Like Son”, “Noreen Bawn”, “Absent Friends” and “Some Girls”.
2014 marked a milestone in the career of the talented Omagh singer. 25 years since he signed a record deal with Ritz records and delivered his debut album “Try a Little Kindness”.
The story continues as Dominic remains one of the most popular Irish singers touring, performing and recording; his fan-base crosses most age groups. He is admired throughout the world, from the Shetlands to Lands’ End, from Malin to Mizzen with the USA, Australia, New Zealand and a fair bit of everywhere else in between thrown in for good measure.
Dominic took to the Omagh Town Hall stage to dance in a Feis at six years of age and that has been his home ever since.
From playing the pubs and clubs of his homeland to the cream of the UK’s concert halls and theatres it’s been a meteoric rise; a magical journey.
The former car parts salesman is from County Tyrone, from where some of Ireland’s greatest names in music came. He started out as a champion Irish dancer, and has been a professional performer since 1989.
Kirwan is father to four sons, including Colm and Barry, and a daughter. He has recorded well over a dozen albums, numerous singles, videos and DVDs.
Dominic has toured with Charley Pride, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams and Tammy Wynette and continues to enjoy sell-out UK and Irish tours in his own right.
The concert is set for September 13th.
