James Kilbane

New date set for James Kilbane’s Westport show


Michael Commins

Achill singer James Kilbane has opted for a home county show to launch his new album, ‘Glory and Grace’. He will be joined in the Castlecourt Hotel in Westport on Sunday night, March 7, by one of the Ireland’s fine young folk and sean nós singers Jenny Mulvey from Ballinrobe and a number of other guests.
The concert, originally schedule for some weeks ago, was postponed because of the recent inclement weather that brought so much of the country to a virtual stand-still. Now, James is delighted that his new album is ready for release to coincide with the new date in March.
‘Glory and Grace’ features 15 inspirational songs, including some Gospel favourites chosen by James following audience requests from touring at home and abroad. The album will be available during the concert and is widely available across the country and on the internet.
James will perform a selection from the new album as well as many of the most popular numbers from his previous seven releases.
Jenny Mulvey made her recording debut last year with her album ‘Suirí’ and has just finished a stint with the hugely successful ‘Pirate Queen’ show with Ballinrobe Musical Society. She also played a major role in the ‘The Legend of Grace O’Malley’ show, which has played to large audiences at various venues. Other special guests for the Westport concert include the talented singing duo Hannah and Garth.
Patrons in the Castlecourt can look forward to almost three hours of great easy-listening music and top entertainment from ballad to anthem. The show gets underway at 8pm and is being organised in association with Mayo Cancer Support Association.
Tickets are now available from the Castlecourt Hotel reception at 098 55088, Rockrose House, Castlebar, at 094 9038407, as well as at Achill Sound Post Office, McHugh’s in Achill Sound and Newport Post Office.
