Get ready to Go Irish with Celtic legend Finbar Furey, Prime Circle and friends at Montecasino.
Join Montecasino and Virgin Mobile South Africa on Saturday, 14 March from 10am until 10pm for an authentic St Patrick's Day celebration filled with family fun, feasting and dancing, topped off by performances from Irish folk music legend Finbar Furey, as well as Prime Circle, Ballyhoo, Michael Fergusson, Beukes & Delaney, and Soweto Gospel Choir.
Finbar Furey has delighted audiences around the world with his gutsy, emotional Celtic folk music for over 40 years - a true pioneer of the genre and hero of the Green Isle! Finbar and his brothers, or The Fureys as they were known, topped the South African charts in 1981 with Sweet Sixteen. As a solo artist, and thirty years on, his latest album, The Slender Promise, has entered Ireland's Indie Chart at number four - so Johannesburg can expect a grand show of Irish charm from this uniquely talented multi-instrumentalist on 14 March.
It doesn't get more Gaelic than this!
Tickets are R130 per person via montecasino.co.za or computicket.com.
