Transatlantic duo join forces for Weigh Inn gig

COUNTRY music performers from Nashville and Oxford will join forces for a special gig at The Weigh Inn, Omagh this Saturday night.

Tennessee singer Pat Reedy is the front man of ‘Pat Reedy & The Longtime Goners’, an independent country band based, at varying times, in Nashville and New Orleans. He released a superb honky tonk album last year.

Pat has toured the US for the past eight years playing festivals, bars, venues and listening rooms.


Although normally backed by the Longtime Goners, his shows are known for their energy, honesty and humour whatever the line-up.

This is Pat’s first trip to Britain and Ireland, where he is being joined on stage by ‘the English Willie Nelson” Ags Connolly.

Ags has just released his sophomore album ‘Nothin’ Unexpected’ to widespread critical acclaim, receiving five star reviews for both his albums in Country Music People magazine and many others.

As a live performer, Ags has headlined shows across Britain, Europe and the US while also appearing at several major British festivals. He has also opened for various international artists including Rosanne Cash. Country Music People magazine named his song ‘When Country Was Proud’ as one of the top 50 country songs from the last 30 years.

Pat Reedy and Ags Connolly will be on stage at the Weigh Inn Bar with Roddy Lynch as support  from 10pm. Admission is free.
