RTÉ's fourth Big Music Week kicks off next Monday, September 30th, and there are really lots of exciting musical happenings planned. Mooney will be jumping on board the train and Brenda will be hosting a most unusual House Party!
The Mooney house parties feature well-known artists or bands, who usually perform in a listener's front room, kitchen, bathroom etc... We’ve had some of Ireland’s greatest entertainers - Brian Kennedy, Tommy Fleming, The Fury Brothers, Majella and Daniel O'Donnell, Crystal Swing, Jack L etc... - all singing their hearts out in kitchens across the country.
Now we are taking our House Party and putting it on the Big Music Week Train along with Ireland’s hottest country music star!
Next Monday, September 30th, at 2.30 pm at Carlow train station, we want to fill a carriage of Mooney listeners and travel to Waterford and back again all in the delightful company of Derek Ryan, who will sing for us all along the way.
And Derek is here in studio today to whet our appetite and sing us a song!
So if you are fancy a very unusual and fun afternoon all you have to do is e-mail Mooney - firstname.lastname@example.org - and tell us why you want come on board with Derek (not our Derek!).
Do you have a special anniversary or birthday celebration coming up? Would you like to surprise a loved one? What about a class reunion?
Maybe you just need a little lift as we head into the cold dark and dreary winter - or plain and simple, you are just a die hard, fanatical Derek Ryan fan. Whatever your reason is, we have a carriage awaiting you, your family and friends!
So e-mail email@example.com and tell us why you would like to be on board the Big Music Week Train with Derek Ryan.
