Eamonn Jackson is a new face on the country dancing scene but already the Cavan singer is making quite an impact in what is a hugely competitive arena.

He is lined up to appear with his band at the Tullyglass House Hotel, Ballymena this Saturday night, August 1, at what promises to be a special occasion given that it is debut there.

Eamonn’s latest single ‘Trailer Hitch’ is proving a big success and has given his fledging career quite a boost following the praise which was lavished on him in the wake of his debut single ‘Day Job’.

Gifted with a superb singing voice and bolstered by a dynamic stage presence, Eamonn certainly has the right credentials for wooing fans.

His band is putting the emphasis on a programme which is tailored for jiving and this is proving instrumental in their early success.

“We have thought long and hard about our programme and we feel that we have now come up with what will prove an acceptable mix in the ballrooms,” Eamonn said.

He added: “We have certainly been putting in the work at rehearsals and we’re hoping that this will be reflected in the crowds that we will be able to attract as time goes by.”

Eamonn has already appeared with considerable success in many of the leading venues and looks set to perform at numerous festivals during the course of the month of August.

“We are finding that we are travelling all over the country but we are happy about that,” Eamonn added.

He intends to bring out a new album shortly but in the interim he is totally focussed on creating a stir at the Tullyglass House Hotel, Ballymena on Saturday night.

“We have found on our visits to the north so far that we have been very well received and we hope that this is again the case on Saturday night. We will certainly be giving it everything in the Tullyglass House Hotel, that’s for sure,” Eamonn said.

Doors open at 9pm and admission is £12.
