Elvis Roots Fes­ti­val

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Hack­et­stown will hold its an­nual mu­sic fes­ti­val to cel­e­brate the ‘King’s’ con­nec­tion to the town on Sun­day, July 28, from 12.30 p.m. This prom­ises, as al­ways, to be a day for all the fam­ily with live per­form­ers such as pop­u­lar coun­try singer Bernie Heaney and An­thony ‘Elvis’ Far­relly (pre­vi­ous win­ner of the Elvis Im­per­son­ators com­pe­ti­tion). There will also be lots of street en­ter­tain­ment with jug­glers, fire eaters and a mini-cir­cus. Jiv­ing with Emma will have you shak­ing your hips. A vin­tage car display, a fal­con display, fin­ger-lick­ing-good treats from the Bar­be­cue Cow­boys and a party at­mos­phere, will all be the or­der of the day. Every­one is very wel­come to come along and get all shook up with Hack­et­stown next Sun­day.

The Elvis con­nec­tion to Hack­et­stown was dis­cov­ered a few years ago when an Amer­i­can ge­neal­o­gist made contact with a Car­low ge­neal­o­gist, Micheál Pur­cell. Micheál was later to visit Amer­ica to ver­ify the con­nec­tion.
