The talented singers and musicians for the evening were: Colcannon duo Conor King and Alexa Vardalas; Tim V. Smyth, singer/songwriter, ; soloist Linda Ryan, accompanied by Daniel Byrne on keyboard; the Ed Dwan String Trio with Ed Dwan, Owen Ronayne, Livia Hyland and Anne-Marie Dwan; Paul Byrne Jnr. singer/songwriter; Eoin Ryan Anthony, singer/songwriter.
