After the huge success of their first six months as a new band playing to a packed house in Cooney’s Hotel, Ballymahon, the Sheerin Family Band have decided to continue with a regular gig on the last Monday of every month.
This month on Monday, July 30, there is a special treat in store for fans of country music. The Sheerin Family Band will be joined on stage by country music legend, Ray Lynam.
Ray, a country singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer, started out in the 1960s singing covers of Rolling Stones’ hits with The Merrymen. At the end of that decade he joined the Hillbillies and first made the Irish charts with ‘Sweet Rosie Jones’. Ray will be performing on the night such hits as ‘Gypsy Joe & Me’, ‘Girls, Women & Ladies’, ‘Back In Love By Monday’ and many more.
The band consists of seven family members out of 11 and includes: Paul on Steel Guitar, Dessie on Bass, Danny on Vocals and Acoustic Guitar, Kieran on Piano, Tom on Fiddle, Simon on Drums and Carmel on Vocals and Acoustic Guitar. Their unique sound and crisp harmonies will leave the hairs standing on the back of your neck.
A great night is in store on July 30 and you never know who you might spot in the crown from the Irish entertainment world. The show starts at 10pm and admission is free.
