2018 Song Contest winner Bri Carr

Last year saw the inaugural Jimmy Kennedy Song Contest in Ardara. Jimmy Kennedy, who wrote classics like “South of the Border”and “Red Sails in the Sunset”, had ancestry in Ardara hence the idea for this Song Contest. Last year Bri Carr won the Contest with her beautiful original “Yesterday”.

Entries are now being taken for this year’s Contest which takes place from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th February 2019, as part of the “South of the Border” Festival. Entries will be taken up to and including the 9th February 2019.

For entry form and further details see our South of the Border Festival page.
