The FOS Brothers, featuring Belfast-born brothers Dave and Sam McCrory and Rom Dobbs, an innovative percussionist from the West Country, will be busting out some tunes.

The band is set to create a stirring fusion of original and traditional songs set to modern dance grooves.

The FOS Brothers were such a huge hit at FolkFest 2008, they were immediately asked to headline at FolkFest 2009 and did not disappoint, blowing a big crowd

away.

The powerful group will be performing at the Victoria Street venue from 8pm and tickets, priced £5, are available from GC Music on 01278 794434.
