Dunaghy Flute Band Centenary

1907 CENTENARY 2007
On Friday 2nd November 2007, Dunaghy Flute Band will present an Evening of Ulster Scots Music & Entertainment in Ballymoney Town Hall.
Attending will be two of Northern Ireland's top flute bands in the form of Mourne Young Defenders from Kilkeel and Ballykeel Loyal Sons of Ulster from Ballymena. Both bands are renowned for their musical ability. Also in attendance will be another of Northern Ireland's finest ensembles, Dunloy Accordian Orchestra. Finally, storyteller and rhymer Charlie Gillen and musician Elaine Allen will provide a more traditional Ulster Scots feel to the evening. Compering the event will be Coleraine comedian and actor, Robert Ramsey.
A spokesman for the band said he was looking forward to the evening and felt that there was an excellent variety of acts. He said: "It would be hard for us to better the performers who will be attending the Town Hall on the 2nd. Bands like the Mourne, Ballykeel and Dunloy are at the top of their categories whilst Charlie Gillen, Elaine Allen and Robert Ramsey are proven entertainers in their own right".
Doors open at 7pm with a start time of 8pm on the night and the band spokeperson explained that tickets are on sale. "While people can simply come along on the night, we are encouraging everyone to purchase a ticket beforehand from either a band member or by contacting the following mobile numbers: 07730609282 or 07852162816".
