This six piece family Country Band who hail from County Wexford has taken the Irish music scene by storm in the last year and won Band of the Year at the Sunday World All Ireland Country Music Awards last January.

They recently performed at big Irish concert with American country star Billy Yates and they can be found packing in the crowds in all corners of Ireland, having recently returned from two successful tours of the UK.

The band have even made waves across the Atlantic, having starred on a Florida cruise to great acclaim.

On the recording front, this talented family has enjoyed hits with songs like Marlena and I’ll be There for You. A new single, Beautiful Affair, is also a sure-fire hit for the boys.

Show business is in their blood as the Davitt Country Band is a new generation of musicians following in the footsteps of an older generation if the family, who dominated the dancehall scene from the 1950s to the 1960s.

Tickets costing £12.50 for this show not to be missed, are available from Bill Duncan on (01651) 872722 or The British Legion on (01651) 872527.
