Derek Ryan has become one of Ireland's leading entertainers and makes a welcome visit to Cirencester in April for a performance of chart hits along with a sprinkling of country classics. His theatre shows contain much of the music featured on his studio albums including many of his own self-penned songs, 'God's Plan', 'Life Is A River' and 'Hold on to your Hat'. Derek's most recent album, "One Good Night" topped the Irish charts. His rise to stardom on the country scene has been phenomenal and there are few country stars who can claim to have made such an impact in just over two years. Derek has been credited as one of the people instrumental in reinvigorated Irish Country Music by opening it to a new young audience. His concert tour has sold out in venues across the country and earlier this year, he took home not one, but two awards from the huge ceremony, held by Ireland's biggest selling newspaper, The Sunday World. Derek was awarded with "Entertainer of the Year" and "Album of the Year' for his number one album, 'The Simple Things'.More information on Derek Ryan is available from derekryanmusic.com.
