Join a brilliant accordionist and an equally brilliant singer-songwriter and what do you get? ‘Mac & O’ of course, and that’s what fans of this indomitable duo will get on Thursday, August 1 when the pair join forces for a super night at The Village Arts Centre, Kilworth. Individually, either Sam or Nick would serve up a wonderful night’s entertainment but together, as ‘Mac & O’, this will be an unforgettable night.
Sam O’Doherty is an accomplished accordionist, singer and overall entertainer who has brought his music across America and Canada. His relaxed style of presenting a powerful and energetic performance is well renowned. Sam’s career spans three decades and two continents and ‘The Man from The Glen’ says he is keenly looking forward to playing the Kilworth venue.
OVER 60 SONGS
‘Never Too Far From My Mind’, ‘To My Children I’m Irish’, ‘Tipperary On My Mind’ and the much requested ‘How’s She Cuttin’ are just a few of the more than 60 songs Nicholas McCarthy is sure to be asked to perform.
Nick as he is known to his friends, has been living in his native Tipperary this past 25 years and prior to that, lived in England for 30 years. It was there he had his first radio spot on The Jimmy Young Show on the BBC with The Alabama Hayriders back in 1966. Subsequently he took part in the Maida Vale Sessions for BBC Radio 2 and the World Service of the BBC. His first TV appearance was on the Ralph Emery show with WSM in the USA in 1976 and again in 1978.
These two old buddies join forces for a very special night of music, song and craic. Book your ticket early from the usual outlets, The Avondhu office, Fermoy (025-32227); Cotter’s Bar, Kilworth (025-27109 after 5pm), Hyland’s Bookshop, Mitchelstown (025-24528) or call 087-6492514.
