As Killala Bay Folk Club continues to go from strength to strength, this month’s event on Friday 5th October at 9pm in The Far Side Café in Johnny Lynn’s, Killala presents Men Of The West.
As the names suggests, this trio hails from the west of Ireland. Pat Coyne comes from Maam Valley in Connemara and is a driving force on the guitar, renowned for his powerful songs, singing a mix of ballads and songs from across the Atlantic. Stephen Doherty and David Doocey both hail from Foxford, in Co. Mayo. Both have numerous All Ireland titles to their name. Stephen brings accordion, flute and whistle to the group whilst David features on fiddle and concertina.
All three are full-time members of renowned singer Sean Keane’s band, and have toured with various groups and productions to over twenty five countries in the last fifteen years as professional musicians. Men Of The West delivers a mix of high energy tunes in a traditional and contemporary style mixed with dynamic songs and airs.
As is usual, everyone is welcome to come along to listen, join in and enjoy a fantastic evening of music in Killala along North Mayo’s Céide Coast.
