A concert featuring all the Fagans (Margaret, Bob, James and Kate) and Nancy Kerr has become an annual treat for Harp goers.

Expect three top draw acts in one show on April 1st.

The Fagans and Nancy Kerr

Be captivated by sublime fiddler and singer Nancy Kerr (Northumberland) and homegrown bouzouki wizard James Fagan on their annual pilgrimage from the UK, with their fourth CD “Strands of Gold”.

Thrill to Kate Fagan’s voice and songs with their beautiful, heart-stopping take on country-roots folk. Kate is currently touring her already acclaimed debut CD “Diamond Wheel”.

And raise your voices and your glasses as the stirring 5-part harmonies of The Fagans envelope you in their unique and powerful sound. Their latest CD “Turning Fine” is fast becoming a classic.
