Traditional Irish Music
STOCKTON’S WING presents their new single ‘We had it all’ on 7th March, marking their first new music in over twenty years. ‘A Retrospective’ tour follows in April & May. All proceeds from the single go to Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland ( MS Ireland), as frontman Mike Hanrahan explains “Two of my close musician friends Mark Gilligan and Niall O Callanáin have been living with MS for a number of years. Their courage and determination to adjust their lives through sheer positive thinking is inspirational. We are delighted to be involved and urge everyone to download the single, all proceeds will go directly to MS Ireland who provides such a high level of support and care for thousands living with the condition”.
Ava Battles CEO of MS Ireland “Everyone at MS Ireland is delighted that Stockton Wing have reunited and are launching their single ‘We Had it all’ in aid of MS Ireland. All proceeds from the sale of the single will go directly towards the provision of services provided by MS Ireland to the 9,000 people living with MS in Ireland. We are greatly appreciative of their fantastic support and generosity”.
The single is supported by their ‘A Retrospective’ tour - tickets are on sale now for their concerts in Dublin, Cork and Ennis on 18th, 19th and 21st April and 3rd May in Ratoath. ‘A Retrospective’ tells the story of Stockton's Wing through music, songs and stories and their vast music catalogue spanning 4 decades - from the early recordings of ‘Take a chance’ to the innovative and critically acclaimed ‘Light in the Western Sky’, the excitement of a big band sound on ‘Full flight’ and ‘Stockton’s Wing Live’ and the engaging and stunning return to basics on ‘The Crooked Rose’.
Stockton's Wing is made up of a collective of musicians who have stepped in and out over the years, all adding their own sounds to the band. This tour will feature special guests and regulars including Tara Breen, Karol Lynch, Tommy Hayes, Paul Roche, Mike Hanrahan and Paul McSherry. During their 40-year career, Stockton's Wing recorded and performed with Ronnie Drew, The Dubliners, Sammy Davis Junior, Maura O Connell, Val Doonican, Sharon Shannon, Moxie, Sean McGuire, Finbar Furey and The Clancy Brothers, played at both Michael Jackson ‘Thriller’ shows in Ireland and appeared in Oscar-nominated movie The Field featuring John Hurt and Richard Harris.
