Percy French: Melodies of Unforgotten Years
Author of some of the best-loved songs in the Irish repertoire, among them "The Mountains of Mourne", "Slattery's Mounted Fut", and "Phil The Fluter's Ball", Percy French is brought to life in Sam McCready's witty and amusing one-man show, which celebrates the music and the life of one of Ireland's best known and best loved entertainers, from his days as Cavan's most notable "Inspector of Drains" to his success as a performer in London, where he not only gave concerts in the most prestigious halls but also performed for the Prince of Wales and distinguished members of the aristocracy. Yet he was most at home in Ireland performing in almost every town and village in the country. In the show, McCready is joined by singer/guitarist Kyle Riley who brings a fine singing voice and a fresh interpretation to many of the best-known songs.
