When we were Young – unique concert set for Rostrevor

Musicians Stephen Travers and Jackie McAuley, along with their great friend, special guest Tommy Sands, will get together this Saturday (1st December) for a unique concert recounting their musical adventures and life experiences.  

Stephen’s story as a survivor of The Miami Showband massacre of 1975 often obscures his remarkable musical journey which has taken him from intimate Jazz, Blues and Beat Group clubs onto the showband and rock music circuit to touring, recording, producing and headlining at venues with some of the most revered names in popular music.  Jackie as a member of the legendary Belfast band “Them”, shared stages with some of the most iconic bands such as The Beatles, and has written countless hits including a worldwide hit for Status Quo, whilst master balladeer and story-teller Tommy can hold any audience in the palm of his hand with his wonderful songs and stories. 

The unique collaboration will take place at An Cuan, 42 Shore Road, Rostrevor, County Down on Saturday, December 1 st at 8pm in association with Truth and Reconciliation Platform. Admission is £10.
