Marc Roberts is promoting his current album entitled The Promise. The 1997 Eurovision runner-up is presenting a number of promising tracks written with various collaborators that were involved in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Irish singer will hold a concert at the Town Hall Theatre in Galway next Saturday. Joining him on stage will be composer Gerard Fahy (Lord of the Dance), fiddle virtuoso Mairin Fahy (Riverdance), and Chris Kelly (Reeltime). In the past, Roberts collaborated with Jimmy MacCarthy, Mick Hanly, and Charlie McGettigan and his current album The Promise brings many of the above elements together to great effect.

The title track to Marc’s latest album is about the Irish who went to America but lost their way and spent their lives in bars reminiscing about home. It was co-written with Darren Holden of The High Kings. This album is currently doing well in Ireland since it features a lot from the Irish traditional tunes.

Marc Roberts will perform with a full live band. More information about the tickets for next Saturday’s concert can be found by clicking here. Marc Roberts represented Ireland in the 1997 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Mysterious Woman. He ended up in a respectable second place.
