Ireland’s First Lady Of Country Music, Susan McCann brings her very special “String Of Diamonds” Concert Tour to The Market Place Theatre on Thursday 18th July 2024
After a hugely successful concert tour in 2022, and not being able to tour in 2023 due to overcoming health issues, Susan McCann is delighted to be bringing her own concert tour back on the road this year. It is sure to be a wonderful night of music and entertainment with Susan as she takes a trip down memory lane performing along with her live band. Susan’s special guest for this tour will be her granddaughter, Sinead, who will be joining Susan on stage and performing some special duets including the hugely popular “Grandpa Tell ‘Bout The Good Old Days”. Also joining Susan on stage will be her husband of over 50 years, Denis Heaney, playing accordion who has been her manager and mentor for all those years. “Dennis and I are a team. It wouldn’t have worked without him by my side. He is a quiet guy and when I recorded “The Wind Beneath my Wings” I did it for Dennis,” she says.
There is no stopping Susan, who is a household name in Irish Country Music and even after over 40 years in showbusiness she continues to diversity, forge new career paths, win awards and gain even greater admiration for her talents from fans and music industry chiefs both at home and abroad. What is the secret of her success in the competitive cauldron that the Country music scene in Ireland and internationally can be? Well perhaps it is down to the sincerity she has shown since starting out as a teenage singer at 16 of always putting the fans first and to diversify for their demands.
