Country music star Margo to perform in Offaly next month
Popular country music singer Margo will return to Tullamore next month for what is promised to be one of the biggest nights of the year for country music fans.
Known as the 'Queen of Country and Irish', Margo, will perform at the Tullamore Court Hotel on Wednesday, July 20 as one of the stops on her 70th Birthday Celebration Concert Tour.
Margo's honesty about her life and times. both onstage and off, has endeared 'the girl from Donegal' to fans for decades now, including many for whom country music might otherwise have held less appeal.
Speaking a number of years ago, on the occasion of a special tour to celebrate her fifty-five years in music, Margo talked about returning to touring after being off the road for a while.
"You know the thing I would miss most - cos' I'd always still sing away - but the thing I'd miss most is not being out there and touring, being with the people. I really missed that contact. My audience are very loving, they're very caring people who come to see me. And I sort of know a lot of them on a personal basis, they're more than fans to me. They're really friends that I've got to know on the road to where I am today."
Margo also said, "I suppose when I look back, I can remember the very beginning of my career, and it doesn't seem that long ago, even though it's fifty-five years. It's kind of unreal. When I started out, I never, ever thought that I would still be singing the way I am this far down the line."
With this tour celebrating her 70th birthday it's clear to see that Margo's love of performing for her many fans around Ireland is still as strong as ever.
Margo will be joined by some dear friends who are also big names in the Irish country scene on the night. Reach Out radio co-founder Trudi Lalor, and Mick Foster of Foster & Allen, with Mick being joined by his true 'better-half', his wife, Moyra Fraser. Young star Alex Roe, whom Trudi mentored all the way to the final of TG4's Glór Tíre in 2020 is also expected to make an appearance on the night.
