Ireland's Stephen Smyth is preparing for his second visit to Rosley on November 19.

Stephen, celebrated for his successful career spanning over 30 years, has weaved his magic in 'Shotgun', Philomena Begley's backing band, and has played with many Irish acts including The Indians, Declan Nerney and Dominic Kirwan.

The Stephen Smyth band, which first hit the stage in 2005, houses Stephen’s myriad talents as a singer, lead guitarist, pedal steel player, fiddle, saxophonist and whistle player.

Alongside John Taylor on keyboards and saxophone, they create music that appeals to a broad audience, their speciality being country music.

Apart from country hits, their portfolio boasts of big ballads and big Band era delights.

Stephen regularly tours across Ireland, the UK, Europe and the USA.

The singer has recently delighted his fans with a new album, 'For the Good Times', featuring favourites like 'My Darling Kathleen', 'The Way I Am' and 'Ireland for the Summer'.

Adele Egglestone, who books the acts at Rosley Village Hall, said: “Stephen is a very popular act at Rosley, with great musical talent playing a variety of instruments.

"He always put on a fine show of country, Irish and popular music - which gets everyone up on the dancefloor, the hands clapping and the feet tapping.”

Tickets for the show on November 19 cost £15 and can be purchased from Adele on 07706 597132.

The show begins at 8pm, with doors opening at 7pm.

A fully licensed bar and disabled facilities are available at the hall.
