Topping the bill on Friday night to open the festival will be an amazing double bill with Donegal’s finest Mary B and Paul Gallagher and the legendary John McNicholl.

Mary B and Paul Gallagher; husband and wife, hail from the picturesque town of Ardara.

John Mc Nicholl needs absolutely no introduction as he is one of the premier faces of Irish Country dance music.

The Indians

On Saturday night the amazing Indians and Stephen Smyth will take to the stage.

A Co. Down man with a brilliant voice and a multi instrumentalist, Stephen was of course a member of the Indians as well as having played with Philomena Begley and Dominic Kirwan before fronting his own band.
