Newry Town Hall hosts The Sands Family and special guests.
Close to Home – The Sands Family in Concert
Newry Town Hall August 27th
Iúr Cinn Fleadh 2022
Born, bred and based in County Down, The Sands Family have been singing and playing music since the late 1960’s.
With their tours, recordings, radio and television work the band played a significant part in the creation of the phenomenal world-wide interest in Irish folk and traditional music.
Siblings Tommy, Ben, Colum and Anne would be the first to agree that their ability to weave local and often humorous stories into songs that travel the world is greatly inspired by their connection to the people, the places and the stories from close to home.
Like most performers, the band welcome the return of live music after the long drought of the past few years. They are especially glad to have a chance to be part of the Iúr Cinn Fleadh, not only to support the Fleadh’s vision to share the power of music in making the city a better place for residents and visitors alike, but also because it is a rare chance to play in Newry.
Often, when returning from far-off travels, people ask, “Do you ever play anywhere close to home at all?”
Happily, the answer to that question is a definite ‘yes’ on August 27th!
The Sands Family are very much looking forward to meeting friends old and new, as they bring their songs and stories for the times that we live in to Newry City Hall and Iúr Cinn Fleadh 2022.
Doors 7pm, Concert 8pm. Bar Facilities Available
