Who would have thought we would a farmer ditch the wellies for a pair of stage shoes, swap the calving aid for a microphone, or park the Massey and hit the road in a bandwagon!
Well that is exactly what is in store for Ireland’s most formidable farmer, Farmer Dan in 2014!
The ever popular Hilltown man is set to polish the wellies and take to the stage as he re-launches his exciting new band to the delight of dancers, jivers and such, up and down the country of Ireland and beyond.
What will be different I hear you ask - well not only can the man sing a country classic, but he can also entertain and have you rolling in the hay with his hugely popular fun songs such as ‘The Transit Van’, ‘Jump into bed with me Wellie Boots on’, “ My Granny Was a Plucker”, “The John Deere Tractor”, ‘My Little Massey’, ‘The Stuttering Bum, ‘Dont Touch My Willie, the list goes on and on and on!
Following a break from touring over six years ago Farmer Dan worked with several music tour operators and has decided since the recent resurgence in the popularity of country music among young and old and based on many requests from his legions of fans that the time was right to pack the sack and hit the road.
Joining Dan will be special guests Boxcar Brian and Big ‘O’.
So if you want a night of cool country music and plenty of craic - you cannot miss this show.
Farmer Dan will be at the Riverside Theatre on Saturday, October 11.
Tickets are on sale now from the boxoffice or online. Tickets are priced at £15.00
