Fergus Cleary will be MC at Friday night's concert in Killygordon.


ALL roads lead to Killygordon on Friday night where some of Donegal’s best musicians, singers and performers take to the stage for the local community variety concert.

The event will be held in the Oaktree Community Centre, with all proceeds going towards helping Crossroads and Killygordon Enterprise (CAKE) continue their good work in the area.

Earlier this year, CAKE opened a new 4,000 square foot, two-storey extension to the centre.

The organisers stress that all artists will be local, as they want to host the event in order to highlight the great wealth of traditional and contemporary musicians and performers in the locality.

MC on the night will be one of Donegal’s best-known artists, writers and storytellers, Fergus Cleary.

Fergus will also be joined by the cream of local talent including traditional group ‘Whin Bush’ who will be accompanied by renowned fiddler, Francie Kelly.

Other musicians and singers include the performers from Dromore National School, Orla Noonan-Sweeney, Shelly O’Brien and Danny Sweeney, John (Simi) Doherty (fiddler), Evan Kee (recital) and Champion Irish dancer, Sophie Duffy.

Doors open 8.15pm and Dromore NS performers will be on stage at 8.45pm, so come early as a large crowd is expected.

Admission is just €10 for adults and €5 for under 16s while there will also be concessions for families.
