This successful event is now in its fourth year and demand for tickets is increasing year on year.
Kilmore Community Development Association will be holding their annual Ulster-Scots concert to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Kilmore Orange Hall, Co. Down, on Saturday 17th March at 7.30pm.
Appearing on stage for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration will be:
Lisburn Young Defenders Flute Band - one of Ulster’s premier melody marching bands.
Elaine McDonald on the tin whistle and Nigel Black on accordion - Elaine has produced a number of excellent CDs playing a wide range of well known tunes from the traditional to the more modern. Nigel is an accomplished accordion player in his own right. On the night Kilmore Community Development Association hopes Elaine will give members of our group’s Fife class a demonstration on traditional fife playing following the concert.
An Ulster-Scots themed supper will then be served and the finale of the night will be a performance by County Armagh based group ‘Stonewall’. Stonewall is a traditional Ulster-Scots group who have performed at Ulster-Scots events across Ulster and beyond; including two trips to the Stonemountain Highland Games in Atlanta during 2010 and 2011. Their lively mix of ballads and traditional tunes will round off an excellent night’s entertainment bringing to an end a day even St. Patrick himself would have been proud of!
