‘The Outlaws’ let it rip in Tipperary
While many bands have a relatively similar programme, The Outlaws have placed their faith in the ‘real deal’ country music.

While many bands have a relatively similar programme, The Outlaws have placed their faith in the ‘real deal’ country music.

Bandleader Sean Hughes is not your ordinary dyed-in-the-wool country music singer and enthusiast.

Instead, he draws his inspiration from many sources and believes the songwriter is often the unsung hero in so many genres of music.

“Everyone that has ever written a good song – those are the men and women whom I look up to in a special way. I have had a fascination with the writers of songs ever since I can remember. I would always check who wrote a song, even in my teenage years. People like Buddy Holly, Neil Sedaka, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Waits, Sammy Cahn.

“I have enormous respect for songwriters”, he told The Nationalist.

Currently riding high with a brilliant song called ‘The Best Part Of The Day’, The Outlaws will appear for a bank holiday special at The Times Hotel, Tipperary Town on this coming Sunday night, May 4.
