Her numerous awards and accolades include the prestigious European Country Music Gold Star Award, while she has toured with legends such as Charley Pride, Emmy-Lou Harris, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, to name a few.

Sandy Kelly whose moving and award-winning tribute to Patsy Cline has toured to acclaim throughout the UK and Ireland, will also perform songs including the beautiful Woodcarver, a successful duet recorded with the late, great Johnny Cash. Country legend Ray Lynam  who reigns supreme with renditions of his hits, such as Back in Love by Monday, Mona Lisa Lost her Smile and He Stopped Loving Her Today, will also feature.

John McNicholl, meanwhile will perform his memorable love songs, including You are no Angel and Someone is Looking for Someone Like You.
