3 piece band from Co Antrium – Conor Lamb, Arron O’Hagan and Deirdre Galway.
Rory Butler – (and family!)

Although the concert is sold out, if you do not have a ticket you may be able to see it on screen live upstairs outside the Strathclyde Suite or listen on Celtic Music Radio at www celticmusicradio.net or 1500 am/mw in the Glasgow area and on digital radio.
Once again many, many thanks to all who took part.
