The pair, who recently released their debut traditional Irish instrumental album The Mystery Inch, are playing The Roots Music Club at the Ukrainin Centre, Beckett Road, Doncaster town centre.

A spokesman said: “Damien is earning a growing reputation for being a creative and exciting musician, singer and composer.

“Primarily a banjo player, he’s recently been winning accolades as a singer, focusing on songs from his native Northern Ireland and further afield.”

Support comes from Sheffield teenagers James Knight and Liam Short, known as Absent Average.
