I was asked a little while back by the organisers would I be interested in taking pictures of the concert to help celebrate the memory of Manuela Riedo. A massive and special mention must also go out to the organiser of the show, Shane Lennon. The support from the artists involved and for those who came along to enjoy the evenings entertainment was a testament to your hard work – well done!!!
Also, due to the amount of images I wanted to share, I am actually going to split the event into two posts so that it allows you to appreciate the evenings efforts. So without any further delay, I present a selection of images taken on the night for you to enjoy
I will warn you now, there will be a lot of images in this post :-)
Our MC for the night was Mary McGill
Arlette and Hans Peter (Manuela’s parents) in the foreground leading everyone to the beach.
We all headed back inside into the Salthill Hotel where we started the nights entertainment.
The first act were the brilliant Trad on the Prom. If you have never seen any of their shows then you MUST go and see them when they resume in the summer.
We then had the amazing Gerard Fahy who gave us a couple of tunes using the Uileann Pipes.
After the Trad on the Prom guys had finished we had Justin Kelly belt some great tunes.
Justin then provided the backing music and vocals to the super talented Lucia Evans.
The next act up were Ruth & Bernie from The Molly Hicks
A little while after they were joined on stage by the talented Mary McPartlan for a few songs
