Lisa McHugh and Philomena Begley among country stars announced for huge Cork gig

Some of Ireland’s best-loved country stars will take to the stage of Cork's Live at the Marquee, on June 29, to perform many of the greatest country songs ever written.

This is country music as you have never heard it before – the songs you know and love performed by the spectacular 50-piece RTÉ Concert Orchestra conducted by Gavin Murphy.

Michael English, Lisa McHugh, Robert Mizzell, Philomena Begley, Ray Lynam, Patrick Feeney and Roly Daniels will come together, with the orchestra, to perform many of their individual hits, as well as surprise duets of some the greatest country songs we all know and love.

Rhinestone Cowboy, He Stopped Loving Her Today, 9-5, Blanket on The Ground, Ring Of Fire and The Gambler are just a taste of what’s in store.

Between them, these stars of Country Roads have scored numerous number one records, sold out venues all over the country and won scores of awards and accolades.

Expected to be one of the highlights of Live At The Marquee Cork 2019, so early booking is strongly advised.

Tickets from €40 go on sale Monday, March 11 at 9 am and will be available from all usual Ticketmaster outlets Nationwide
