There will be a evening of traditional music and dance in Gorey Little Theatre on February 11.

The evening which will be hosted by Gorey Ballygarrett CCE will feature up and coming new Irish trad band Cuig who hail from Armagh. The young band have just returned from the renowned Irish Heartbeat Tour in Germany.

The youngsters are not only setting the musical world on fire as a band but also individually holding many All Ireland titles between them.

Similar to many young people in Wexford Cuig got their first taste of music when they joined a local comhlatas group.

In addition to a performance by Cuig Ireland's leading sean nos dancer, Irene Cunningham, will also take to the stage in the theatre on the night. Irene will also run a workshop on Saturday in Bunscoil Loreto from 12pm-2pm.

This will cost €10 per person and is suitable for anyone from beginners to improvers.

The children from Bunscoil Loreto will also join the band and Irene on stage adding a very local flavour to the concert which is sure to draw large crowds.

Tickets will be on sale from The Gwalia Stores Main street Gorey and Making Music, Redmond Square or contact Gráinne on 086 8486271 or Jackie 085 7028890.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to witness the success of this band.
