Country music fans are in for a big treat in Ballycastle on Sunday 29th May as the sensational Lisa McHugh will take to the stage and bring the crowd to their feet, during the opening weekend of the Rathlin Sound Maritime Festival.
Originally from Glasgow, but living in Fermanagh for the last four years, Lisa has been filling dance floors in venues up and down Ireland. The massive YouTube sensation has won the hearts of country fans across the island and has also captured the attention of Nathan Carter who dueted on Lisa’s album track “You Can’t Make Old Friends”.
Lisa McHugh is one of the few women in the Irish country music scene and she brings her lively and fun style of music, which is guaranteed to get fans to their feet for a good old country dance night.
Her current album “Wildfire” was released last year, reaching number 7 on the Official Irish Charts. Fans will be hoping to hear Lisa’s top hits “Why d’ya come in here”, “Applejack” and “Hillbilly Girl” and perhaps a first taster of some new material. The talented country starlet has a new album coming out later this year, which is expected to be a runner for the top spot in the charts.
Winning “Female Vocalist of the Year” for the third year in a row in 2016, Lisa is ready to “Bring on the Good Times” as her live Irish tour comes to Ballycastle on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Grab your dancing shoes and get your tickets booked for what promises to be a great night’s entertainment.
The dance is at 9pm at the Marine Hotel, Ballycastle on Sunday 29th May. Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from Ballycastle Visitor Centre on 02820 762024; or from the Marine Hotel on 02820 762222. Pre-booking is strongly recommended.
