Two of Co. Antrim’s finest recording stars Alastair Coyles and Steve Farlow have recorded Mickey Marley’s Roundabout as a duet which will feature children of Our Lady Of Lourdes High School Ballymoney in the chorus.
The single proceeds will go in aid of the school funds and buy a interactive white board for the school.
The song Mickey Marley’s Roundabout was a number one hit in 1983 for the Irish folk group Barnbrack and they hope to make it a major success this year again.
As many people already knows the story of the legend Mickey Marley, Mickey was a wee man who travelled the streets of Belfast in a horse drawn cart with his roundabout and gave the children a go for only a penny. Sadly the roundabout was burnt one day however the people of Belfast rallied around and bought Mickey a new one, much to his and the children’s delight.
So why not come hear the single on Friday, October 21 at 7.30pm in a Grand Country Show at Our Lady Of Lourdes High School, Ballymoney where Alastair Coyles, Steve Farlow and the pupils pay tribute to the legend and release of the new single.
Joining the county Antrim stars on the night are young singing star Simon Peters, multi award Father and son duo Tommy and Ben Troy, Fiddlin sensation Ritchie Remo, Joan Watson, Rado Stars Cowboy Larry, Charlie McNamee and Don Rodgers. Admission is only £6 tickets for this concert is now on sale via the school reception, pupils and Alastair Coyles on 07835068084.
