THE Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown is the venue for what promises to be a spectacular night when local talent Justin McGurk launches his album with a star-studded line up.

In association with White Star Promotions, Justin will launch his new Album ‘Remember Me’ on Thursday 1 December with his live five-piece Band ‘The Boogie Men’ plus special guests Hugo Duncan, Philomena Begley, Brendan Quinn, Joe Moore, Ritchie Remo, Sinead Taggart and Aidan Quinn.

Justin, from Kildress just outside Cookstown is no stranger to the music industry, having started as a two-piece with Rory Madden, over a decade ago. The talented duo has played with many of the greats such as American sensation Martina McBride, Hal Ketchum and The Proclaimers to name but a few.

Justin eventually formed a five-piece band better known as the Boogie Men, entertaining crowds at many functions including weddings, parties and festivals.

‘Remember Me’ is Justin’s seventh album to date and features many well known songs such as ‘Summer in Dublin’, ‘Mountains of Pomeroy’ and a song he penned himself ‘Take Me To the Fair’ written about the popular tourist attraction the Lammas Fair in Ballycastle.

Having performed everywhere from pubs and clubs to weddings and festivals, he has gone from strength to strength and has acquired many fans of all ages. He made several appearances on TG4 show Glor Tire, having reached the Grand Final of the show in 2009.

Justin also went down a storm at this year’s Country Fest, opening the Lammas Fair in Ballycastle and made a special guest appearance on Hugo Duncan’s broadcast for Children in Need. This artist is in demand so don’t miss your opportunity to see him in the Greenvale Hotel Cookstown tonight.

Joining Justin for the launch are some of the most well-known names in Country Music. BBC Radio Ulster’s Hugo Duncan, Queen of Country Music Philomena Begley, Brendan Quinn, Ritchie Remo, Sinead Taggart, Aidan Quinn and Joe Moore will be performing too.
