Brian Moore, who helped organise the ‘Coleraine Goes Country’ event at the weekend, has thanked the staff of the establishments who got involved in the event.
Brian said: “There were 36 gigs over the two days plus the two concerts at Dunnes Stores car park.
“It was an honour to be tasked by Coleraine Borough Council to arrange it all.
“It couldn’t have happened, however, without the excellent cooperation of the owners and staff of the various venues and the professionalism of the chosen acts.
“The attendance at the concerts was beyond expectation, given that this was the first attempt to do this.
“Ritchie Remo and his fans enjoyed a lively and highly atmospheric evening on Friday, and well done to those who braved the torrential rain on Saturday and saw through the whole performance by the new darling of the country scene, Lee Matthews.
“My thanks especially to Jason McAllister, Steve Farlow, Drop Circus, Chris Taplin, Jordan Mogey, Ritchie Remo, Fiddler Adam and Lee Matthews - you all did Coleraine proud!
“And the even better news is that it’s already planned for next year!
