When he is not singing in the choir at Edenderry Presbyterian Church, Portadown man Richard Finlay is writing and recording his own country songs.

Richard has recently had 28 of his songs fully copyrighted to his name, and has joined the Guild of International Singers and Composers. The 45-year-old, who is originally from Moneymore but moved to Co Armagh last year, has received airplay on a number of country and gospel radio shows.

He has acknowledged the support of local people, in particular John Wilson, in helping him get his song recording off the ground.

Richard is available for gigs or concerts and can be contacted at richardcfinlay@gmail.com.
