Derek Ryan ‘THIS IS ME’ UK Concert Tour starts March 30th



Derek Ryan described his recent appearance at the St Patrick’s Day Festival in Trafalgar Square as a career highlight.  Considering the singer songwriter has toured the world in his former boy band guise with D-Side and having had top 10 hits in the UK and a #1 in Japan, makes his London open air appearance special.

The Carlow man, who was awarded ‘Songwriter of the Year’ at last June’s ICMAs, combines a mix of concert and dance tours to broaden his fan appeal and to compliment this style released two albums last October, both charting in the Irish national charts in the top 10.

Released Date: 21 Oct. 2016 Happy Man (Sharpe Music) Amazon UK

Released Date: 28 Oct. 2016 This Is Me - The Nashville Songbook (Sharpe Music) Amazon UK

HAPPY MAN is an album catering for the core dance hall audience and features many of Derek’s own songs along with some country classics.  ‘This is Me’, released on the same day, was recorded in Nashville and features 11 songs entirely written by Derek including a new version of his debut hit ‘God’s Plan’ which is set for an American release later this year. 

Last December Derek made his Canadian debut as a guest with Daniel O’Donnell on two arena concerts at Niagara Falls and will also feature in a PBS special broadcast across 300 stations in America this month as a guest of Daniel, who has recorded a number of Derek’s songs.

(24 March 2017) IMRO were happy to present Derek Ryan with three awards in recognition for his No1 albums “Happy Man”, “The Simple Things” and “One Good Night”. The awards were presented by IMRO’s Keith Johnson before Derek’s show at the Dean Crowe Theatre and Arts Centre, Athlone.
From the age of twelve Irish Country Music superstar Derek Ryan had showbiz aspirations in his DNA.

From his first foray into the music scene performing regularly at socials with his brother Adrian as the Ryan Brothers right through to a pop career with an international band he has now become one of today’s biggest Irish Country artists.
Having grown up in Garyhill near Carlow town in Ireland, Derek was bred into loving Irish traditional music by his family, attending fleadh ceoils on a regular basis with his Father. It was not long before Derek was himself a winner, picking up two all-Ireland titles in both bodhran and ceili drumming.

Derek’s concert tour includes a mix of old favourites, classic country and Derek’s own original material. The highlight of the show is considered the moment the band and performance is stripped back, where Derek is left alone with his guitar on stage. This, to Derek, is a chance for his audience to get to know him better, and know more about the music.
The THIS IS ME tour begins on Friday 30th March in Langholm, Scotland and visits:
