Enjoy an evening of beautiful Irish singing at the Forum with one of Ireland’s most popular female singers.
Northallerton Silver Band have organised this fund raising evening with ANN BREEN who will be giving a magical concert accompanied by acoustic and bass guitarists, Jimmy and Graham.
Enjoy Ann’s lovely brand of crystal clear Irish singing.
Ann comes from Downpatrick, a lovely little town that nestles at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in County Down, Northern Ireland. Ann has been involved in music all her life, listening to her grandmother singing all their favourite popular songs of her time.
In her junior years, Ann won her first competition at the age of nine. Ann performed the song "Edelweiss" from "The Sound of Music" at a competition in her local town. At sixteen Ann was singing with a local country band and did so for several years. She continued to sing at semi-professional level on the local cabaret circuit until 1981 when she recorded her first album "Country Songbird" with Belfast Record Company "Outlet Records".
"Pal of My Cradle Days" was released as a single and went straight to No 1 in the Irish charts; then soared up the British National charts to number 47. The single was so successful that it entered the Guinness Book of Song Records for remaining in the charts for two years!
