About the Event
After an enjoyable visit to the Strule Arts Centre in March 2016 The Whistlin Donkeys have been busy headlining the St Patrick Day celebrations in Time Square, New York, heading Memorial day events in East Durham and the Catskills New York and Boston Irish Festival.
The Whistlin Donkeys have shared the stage along side The Beach Boys, Smokie, Bagatelle, The Dubliners, Shane Filan and many more and were the lineers on many festivals throughout Ireland this summer. They make a return to The Strule Arts Centre for an evening of traditional Irish rock/folk music. Throughout the evening the Donkeys will feature some hits from their last top selling album Sung Like a Donkey and for the first time they will play a number of tracks form their forth coming album “An Irish Song Book” and of course a mix of old favourites.
The Whistlin Donkeys are proving to be Tyrone’s latest export in the music world. It’s a great achievement for the local lads that have their feet firmly on the ground as they become more and more in demand throughout the USA, Germany and the UK.
Pop guru and reality TV start Louis Walsh is regularly in touch with the boys mentoring them and has agreed to work on an album that is planned later in the year in time for Christmas. Louis has agreed to help pick songs and write sleeve notes.
