Top gigs in Droichead

There are quite a few top gigs listed for this summer around Drogheda - but can any match the Droichead Arts Centre on Saturday July 14.

The exceptional Carolan brothers, Gene, Stephen and James will perform live with former Voice of Ireland winner Pat Byrne and local soul and pop artist Saoirse.

The Carolan Brothers need little introduction at this stage - true craftsmen, they are a distinctive and unique combination of harmonies.

They will have some classics on the night and a selection of original material written by Pat Byrne and the brothers.

Pat Byrne can sing the Blues with the best of them and he has - not surprisingly - been put in the mould of Joe Cocker.

Pat is currently based in Austin, Texas, where he is recording his second studio album and tours in the US.

Saoirse Kavanagh's music has been influenced by the sounds of artists like Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas and Joss Stone to name a few. She released her debut single 'Strong' in March .
