All the way from Northern Ireland, Owen Mac returns to NL with his soulful hybrid of Irish music
The incredibly gifted performer, Owen Mac, returns to Newfoundland with special guest Desi Mac and the Keltic Storm Band.
Proudly presented by Vaughnco Entertainment, Mac can be seen onstage at Arts and Culture Centre’s in Corner Brook on August 31, in Grand Falls-Windsor on September 1 and in Gander on September 2. On September 3rd, Mac will be in St. John’s performing at Holy Heart Theatre for his highly anticipated return.
Friendly & welcoming
During his last visit, Mac performed at both Princess Sheila NaGeira Theatre and at Holy Heart, he recalled.
“I remember coming back home to Ireland with my family wanting to return (to NL) as the people over there are so friendly and welcoming and it feels very much like Ireland … I can’t wait to perform again in both those venues and more as I return at the end of August,” he said.
At just 19, he has had quite the career. “I remember growing up, I knew that I always wanted to pursue a career in music,” Mac said, recalling that his first performance in front of a live audience was at 12-years-old.
“Music has always been in my family, so I think that’s how I had such a love for it. My daddy used to sing a lot, and I grew up listening to him perform, so I think music has always been in the house for me.”
The talent comes from many sources, he continued, and he has a few musical inspirations.
“I have always been influenced by a lot of country and gospel singers and of course singers back here in the Irish country scene. People like Vince Gill and traditional artists like Jim Reeves and Merle Haggard.”
What can fans expect to see when he takes the stage on September 3rd? The best of the best, he shared!
Performing for fans
“This year I am bringing out my seventh studio album and I can’t wait to share it with everyone,” he said.
Mac shared that returning to NL means a lot after COVID and he’s excited to visit and perform for fans.
“I just can’t wait to see everyone while I am back over again and I hope that everyone enjoys the show.”
