Phil Coulter brings his 'Four Score and Then' tour to Mullingar

The incredible Phil Coulter plays Mullingar Arts Centre on Saturday December 2, which is just around the corner, as he embarks on his 'Four Score And Then' nationwide tour.

One of Ireland's great raconteurs, Coulter clocked up a major milestone last year, and some may have assumed that his ‘Phil Coulter at Eighty’ tour was a sort of lap of honour, a last hurrah for his followers. Wrong!

At over 30 shows across the country with packed houses and standing ovations, it was definitely not time to say goodbye. Fans wanted more of that Coulter magic, the songs, the stories and the touch of tranquillity.

After 55 years at the very top of his game Phil Coulter has achieved the status of legend in the music business. But his enthusiasm and energy have never waned. He loves his audiences and has happily jumped straight back into a new tour this autumn, with fresh collections of memories and melodies.

He will be joined by special guests Geraldine Branagan and rising star George Hutton. As the man said, “fashions may fade but quality is timeless”.

He is the only Irish artist to have a song recorded by Elvis Presley, while his song Puppet On a String for Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision, and his ‘Congratulations’ for Cliff Richard placed 2nd in the Eurovision. Meanshile, his song ‘The Town I loved So Well’ (Luke Kelly) is one of the most played tracks on Irish radio and the list just keeps going on and on

Coulter was presented with the Freedom of the City of Derry at a special ceremony in the Guildhall last October, in celebration of his 80th year. It was a big weekend in the 'Town I love So Well'. This incredible legend’s Ireland’s Call was even performed by Bono in the Sphere in Las Vegas recently to kickoff one of Ireland’s games!

Very few in the music business can boast of having chart entries in every decade since the sixties. Even fewer can match the range of Phil’s output – from Eurovision winners to folk classics, from tender ballads to sporting anthems.

Dont miss him when he plays at the Mullingar Arts Centre.
