Friendship Band Northern Ireland
The Friendship Band is coming to the end of another busy year – the time has just flown in!! Our final enagagement of 2017 has just been completed with us playing at the official turning on of the Christmas tree lights in Ardglass. It was a cold, dark and chilly night, however, the turnout from the folk from Ardglass was exceptional – the carol singers were great, the local band was on top form and we entertained with christmas tunes!!
You may recall that we spent the summer meeting and greeting most of the cruise ships that dock in Belfast. Over 150,000 cruise visitors alighted in Belfast as their gateway to Northern Ireland in 2017 – now THAT was an audience!!
We attended the International Band Parade in Limerick on Saint Patrick’s day weekend and were privileged to lead the parades for both the Red Sails Festival in Portstewart and the Super Cup NI (formerly the Milk Cup) – all were fantastic events and the crowds were, as always, highly enthusiastic!
We are already planning 2018 – we will keep you posted as things start to take shape – for now… have a great Christmas and New Year!
