Pure Gold from Coulter in Portlaoise

Legendary songsmith Phil Coulter returns to the stage this month with a show sure to live up to its name, when ‘Pure Gold comes to the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise for two nights.

‘Pure Gold’ was how a US critic recently described a Phil Coulter show. It struck a chord with the man himself so he hijacked the title for his new show and album.

Phil’s long career as a songwriter, producer and recording artiste has been recognised over the years with so many gold discs that the theme is totally appropriate.

Very few can boast of having chart entries in every decade since the sixties, or match the range of Phil’s output – from Eurovision winners to folk classics, from tender ballads to sporting anthems, from Luke Kelly to Elvis Presley.

This new show features Phil’s personal favourites as he trawls through his 50 years of creativity, with some of the big hits and some that simply meant a lot

An original retrospective on the work of one of our finest, it’s a show for every lover of good music and one not to be missed this Christmas.

Phil Coulter will play at the Dunamaise Arts Centre from this Sunday, December 17, to Tuesday, December 19, at 8pm nightly.

Tickets are available from the box office priced €27.50/€25.
