Phil Coulter

Phil Coulter celebrates 53 years of music this year and stops in Carrick-on-Shannon as part of his tour.


The composer and singer will perform in The Landmark Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon on October 20, 2018.
Phil Coulter is without doubt one of the enduring talents in the music business, having enjoyed success and notched up hits in the 60’s, 70’s 80’s and 90’s with a tally of 23 platinum, 39 gold and 52 silver discs.
He has contributed at least four titles to the list of Great Irish Songs - the anthems “The Town I Loved So Well,” “Ireland’s Call” and the haunting “Scorn Not His Simplicity” and “Steal Away.”


He was also the receiver of the 'Legend of Derry award' in June of last year as part of Foyle Legends of Derry.
Internationally revered, Phil Coulter’s music reached from the Irish Pub to the opera stage. As an arranger and a composer, his music has been performed by such diverse talents as Elvis Presley and the Irish Tenors.
As a producer, he has helped to guide the careers of The Bay City Rollers and Sinead O’Connor. As a performer he has become an icon in Ireland and a guiding force behind the Celtic music revival.


The catalogue of songs and remarkable talent, however, has resulted in 23 platinum discs, 39 gold discs, 52 silver discs, two Grand Prix Eurovision awards, five Ivor Novello awards and three American Society of Composers gongs, in addition to a Grammy nomination.
The 75-year-old is still delighting audiences and he will perform in Carrick-on-Shannon on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Doors open at 8pm.
