Our Christmas concert sees us again featuring the wonderful, vibrant and engaging New York Public Library. (Some of you will remember they were unable to come in October due to illness.) So you have another chance to see them and I know you won't be disappointed. The New York Public Library a long established band with a wealth of experience that is above all fun and a good antidote to the hustle and bustle of the silly season.

New York Public Library - Isabelle Fogarty on the double bass, Warren on banjo and John Flanagan on mandolin. They are just so much fun- uplifting catchy and exuberant sound - you will leave with a smile I am sure! This unique trio has been performing for over 30 years delighting audiences with their trademark style of music eclectic is how you would describe it - bluegrass, folk, country and jazz with closely blended 3 part harmonies and a spontaneous humour and a few of their own self penned songs.

John & Penny Flannagan - Also on the bill John Flanagan will be teaming up with his daughter Penny a well known singer and recording artist in her own right. She is back again performing after family commitments have forced her to take a break. It will be so lovely to see these two talented performers perform together a rare treat so don't miss this special collaboration which will give our Christmas night a bit of pizazz!!

This is going to be a festive fun night with spots singing seasonal cheer, supper, cake, Santa and Xmas themed raffles and balloons.
