Glórach serving up a musical feast

A veritable music feast is being served up at the Glórach Theatre this month, with the popular Abbeyfeale venue playing host to two concerts in quick succession.

First up on Thursday, September 12, is Limerick singer-songwriter Emma Langford, who makes her debut at the Glórach.

Emma received widespread critical acclaim for her debut album Quiet Giant in 2017 and last year won the RTE Radio One 'Best Emerging Artist' award at their inaugural folk awards.

Emma made a deep impression on West Limerick audiences with her performance at the Éigse Michael Hartnett festival in 2018 and the intimate and compact surrounds of the Glórach are ideally suited for this type of gig.

Emma will be ably supported on the night by West Limerick singer Trevor Sexton, whose performance at The Hearts of Men concert in June left local audiences yearning for more.

Two days later, on Saturday 14 - clashing with the big replay in Croker - the Glórach will be switching genres, as they welcome Leroy Troy and his Hillbilly Trio to town.

Troy, from Goodlettsville, Tennessee, made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry in 1988 and was the National Old Time Banjo Champion in 1996.

As well as his proficiency on the banjo, Troy is quite capable in playing of other instruments, including home-made ones that contribute to the unique character of Bluegrass music.

Both concerts start at 8 pm, and tickets can be booked by ringing (087)1383940.
