Children from the Traditional Music in Schools Programme and Cookstown Youth Choir will be returning to our stage!

We’re also excited to welcome Malachi Cush as he shares some of the cherished folk songs and religious classics he’s known and loved for, as well as some new and much anticipated works.

Malachi will be joined on the evening by acclaimed musicians Mark Carmichael and Plunkett McGartland and one of Mid-Ulster’s favourite female vocalists Niamh McGlinchey.
