The queen of Irish country Philomena Begley will be making a welcome return to the Burnavon on Sunday April 2.

She will be joined on stage on the night by fellow country music star Ray Lynam.

Philomena Begley was born and grew up in Pomeroy, County Tyrone, and worked in a hat factory in Cookstown before her break into music.

Since then her music career has gone from strength to strength, and her hard work has earned her the well deserved title of ‘QUeen of Irish Country Music’.

Philomena Begley has made a firm imprint on the Irish, British and European markets.

She has regularly toured with Ray Lynam since 1975 and they have recorded many duets together, their most popular songs being ‘My Elusive Dreams’, ‘You’re the one I can’t live without’ and ‘She sang the melody’.

After the ‘Two of US’ tour proved to be a roaring success, the pair are back again with the unmissable ‘Country Royalty’ tour, where they will be supported by upcoming country sensation, Cliona Hagan.

The show gets underway at 8pm on Sunday April 2 and tickets, priced £20, are on sale now from the Burnavon Theatre Box Office on 028 8676 9949 or online at www,
