Singer Grainne Duffy and comedian Jimmy Cricket and friends will be gracing the stage of the Market Place Theatre, Armagh.

Grainne has already appeared at Glastonbury and has toured much of Europe with her unique brand of blues, rock and soul.

She opened for Jools Holland on his recent tour, playing for three nights.

Grainne will appear on Saturday, January 31 at 8pm. Tickets cost £14 each.

The following day, Sunday, February 1, it’s time for a few laughs with local man Jimmy Cricket, recognisable by his funny hat and wearing his wellies on the wrong feet.

He will be joined on stage by May McFettridge (John Linehan) and comedian Neil Dougan, while Gene Fitzpatrick will be telling stories from his new DVD ‘Turning Back the Years’. Tickets cost £18.

Tickets for both performances can be booked on 3752 1821 or online at
