Top folk artists, Diarmuid O'Leary and The Bards will be performing in Lincolnshire on October 20.

Ireland's leading entertainers are embarking on a tour, promising two hours of music, song and humour which will stop off in the county.

The group will perform at St. Norbert's Community Hall in Spalding on October 20.

Their first recording success came with a number one hit single “Julia steppin’ it out at Lanigan’s Ball”- a comedy song, which became a classic and one of the biggest selling records in Ireland, earning them a Gold Disc Award.

As well as their comedy hits, The Bards have also had significant success with their recordings of classic ballads and contemporary songs, such as “The Railway Hotel”, “Shaney Boy”, “Song for Ireland” and “Isle of Innisfree”.

Two new singles have been released alongside the live shows, 'Breaking the Line' and 'The Cover of Ireland's Own'.

Not only popular in Ireland, the artists are widely played across America, Canada and Australis, as well as the UK.

    @Newsreaderjoy: My whole comment was tongue in cheek. I dont know any proper folk bands...... because I'm a normal person

    How on earth is Taylor swift folk music ? it's the exact same drivel that everyone else in the charts comes up with.

    I'm glad they'll be playing at St Norberts hall, I really like that venue. Hopefully people like Taylor Swift are bringing folk music into the 21st Century. Should be a good gig.
