Upcoming concerts thread.

I think this could go hand in hand with the concert buddy thread.
Its a thread to highlight ALL types of country concerts that are coming up. As we all know its kind of hard to get info for country in Ireland as its a market thats not really serviced well, And any info you need you have to go really out of the way to find it.

So ill begin by highlighting Dolly parton coming to cork belfast and dublin on the10th 11th 12th june

I dont think I need to remind people that Garth brooks is coming!!

Anybody know of any country festivals coming up for the bank holiday?

Kilkenny Roots Festival is on this May Bank Holiday.

The Greystone Americana & Roots Festival has been post-phoned to next year.

I don't know any other festivals (with that sort of music) in Ireland ...

Kacey Musgraves is playing The Academy on the 10 July 2014.
Tickets are on sale at the moment. If I'm back from my holidays I'm going to try and make it.

Country music gig from guy I've never heard

Kevin Montgomery at the Dublin Conservative Club on Friday the 16th at 8 pm with opening act Clive Barnes. I found this on eventbrite

I am from the south, so I am always up for a country concert and there is one this Friday but I have never heard of this guy and it doesn't look like the almighty lord Google knows much about him either.

More of an FYI than anything, but I'd be happy if anyone here could recommend(or not recommend) him to me.

Best folk/bluegrass festival in Ireland for many yrs.
Don't have the funding they used to but still plenty quality acts.
Fantastic venue

Kacey is going to be a good one, she was fantastic when she was here last!

I am going. I saw him this year in Kilkenny on his own and thought he was very good.

If you like him, you should also check out John Fulbright.
He is playing in Whelans too. (He is not country but americana.)

Thanks for that, I'll check him out.

Have you got a ticket yet? I'm worried it's gonna sell out soon

Yes, I got mine on tickets.ie rather than ticketmaster, as the booking fee is lower on that site. Sturgill is making a name for himself over in the UK and here so personally I wouldn't leave it too late
