GLEN CAMPBELL TRIBUTE FEATURING ASHLEY CAMPBELL
Closing the tenth series of Opry le Daniel on Friday 21st June will be the GLEN CAMPBELL Tribute Show featuring Glen’s very own daughter flying in from Nashville, Tennessee, Ashley Campbell, accompanied on stage by Ireland’s own Johnny Brady, Ciaran Rosney and Marc Roberts, who toured with Glen Campbell.
Ashley Campbell is a well-known American country music singer and songwriter, having played banjo for her father during his farewell tour in 2011/ 2012 and followed that with her debut single, “Remembering”, a song about her father and his struggles with Alzheimer’s disease.
In 2016, Campbell appeared at the ‘Country to Country’ festival in the UK and such was her popularity that she was booked to play the main stage at the 2018 festival in a special tribute to her father where she released her debut album ‘The Lonely One’ featuring 13 tracks all co-written by Ashley herself.
The second concert of the evening, and the final for the Opry Le Daniel 2019 series will be Celtic Country and will feature performances from Tommy Fleming, Eleanor Shanley and The Celtic Brothers (formerly The Willoughby Brothers).
