The seasonal cheer need not end this year when Christmas is over, as The Market Place Theatre in Armagh continues to brighten up the dark winter nights with an array of sparkling entertainment.

The 2013 UK Winner of ‘The Voice’, Andrea Begley, who comes from a strong musical heritage with her aunt being country legend Philomena Begley, is performing on Saturday night, December 27.

In 2013 Andrea won the second Series of ‘The Voice’ UK where Danny O’Donaghue of The Script acted as her mentor.

Andrea’s first album ‘The Message’ made it into the UK charts in October last year. Andrea now brings on tour a show which brings to the stage her album ‘The Message’ as well as some of the Irish traditional music that has influenced her as a singer from a young age.

Andrea will be joined on stage by songwriters Anthony Toner and Ben Sands from the legendary folk group – The Sands Family. Tickets are priced £14 and £12 (concession).

The Market Place Theatre’s first event of 2015 will see the return of the ever popular Cajun | Bluegrass Club featuring the best of bluegrass and Cajun music together with food that is as spicy as the music. ‘Special Consensus’ is one of the best bluegrass bands on the music circuit. ‘Bluegrass with attitude and boundless energy’ is a fitting description of this superb bluegrass band.
