This incredibly moving and powerful one-man autobiographical evening of song, story & talketry comes to us all the way from a unique and deceptively simple Northern Irish townland that Tommy Sands calls home: Mayobridge, County Down.

His music draws the audience into the compelling tales of Ireland's great loves, conflicts and its playful and unbreakable spirit. "SingOut!" magazine calls him "the most powerful songwriter in Ireland if not the rest of the world."

With tin whistle, banjo, mandolin and other instruments, there is the feel of a true Irish céilí, where music and dancing lift the spirit well into the wee hours.

** Gold Circle tickets include front center section seats and a 6:30 pm reception, an opportunity to meet the artist.
