Michael English – His Meteoric Rise of The Country Music Star

In just 3 short years Michael English has established himself as One of Ireland’s best Country Music Stars.

It’s hard to believe that Michael was offered a very lucrative contract in the USA that would see him touring with an Orchestra for 4 years & he had a major decision to make. Then, just before agreeing to go he went on a Paul Claffey Music Country Trip to Portugal & was bowled over by it all & decided this was the path for him.


Since then Michael has gone from strength to strength, packing out venues all over Ireland & The UK for both concerts & dances. Michael & his talented Band are renowned for their energetic performances & with Michael’s musical talents he plays both his famous “red piano” & accordion at his shows. He is dedicated to giving his followers an unforgettable show each time they see him. And with accolades like “Best Country Dance Band” at The Irish Country Music Awards & “Performer of the Year” at The Sunday World country Music Awards under his belt there is no stopping the Kildare man!

Michael is currently in the middle of his Irish Concert Tour & returns to The Carrickdale Hotel, Dundalk on Wednesday November 15th.

He has also just recorded his 1st Live DVD which will be released on November 24th which will be followed by a live album.
