I'M buzzing this week with the news that I'll be playing a country music festival here in Ireland this August.

The Moynalty Country Music Festival, in Co. Meath, is all set to take place on Saturday, August 8.

I know the numbers allowed to attend will be limited, but it promises to be a great evening of entertainment with Mike Denver, Robert Mizzell, Matt Leavy and Paul Leavy also on the bill.

After all this time being locked down, we now see the world of entertainment starting to open up.

I know from the fans on social media that everyone is really excited about the prospect of seeing bands playing live on stages.

There have been several pilot events taking place here and in the UK and, so far, it looks like they've all run without a hitch.

The vaccines have changed everything, so, hopefully, we can all get back to leading semi-normal lives again.

My last shows playing in front of an audience were back in February 2019 on the Gertrude Byrne Mexican cruise, so that was a long, long time ago. I'm going to have to do some serious rehearsing to memorise all the songs again.

Of course, before Moynalty I'll be performing at the Craic by the Creek in Greater Manchester next month. That's going to be another great weekend of entertainment, with Lisa McHugh also topping the bill at that event.
