HOOLEY AT THE FAIR 2018

We have another great line up of musical and cultural talent on stage this year in the family area of the show.

To start proceedings off on Saturday at 1pm is the superb Hounds of Ulster.  This cross community music and dance team will see flautists accompany Irish Dancers, bringing their brand of unique artistic flare to the stage.

Following on from 2.30pm will be country music performers Country Harmony and Box Car Brian.

But don’t forget, the music this year continues on into the evening, when young country music star David James will be providing the stage music to accompany our first Jiving Competition at the event from 6.30 to 7.30pm…so we hope you all have your dancing shoes on!!

Sunday will start with the very popular tones of Clann an Drumma, who will be performing at the stage area from 11.45am.  The band which hails from Scotland will thunder into life with their fusion of drum and bagpipe tribal music.  Always a favourite with visitors.

Following on at 12.15pm will be Smooth the Band, bringing a mixture of modern, traditional and country music to get everyone’s toes tapping.

Playing out the afternoon from 2.30-4.30pm will be country music sensation Lisa McHugh.  With the stage and dance floor in place, why not head on over for some fun and dance in the family area.
