Live country music of the highest calibre is coming to Stornoway on Thursday (5 March) whe the Brighton-based country singer Ags Connolly appears at the County Hotel.

Touring the UK to promote his third album Wrong Again, Ags comes to Stornoway as well as visiting Glasgow, Aberdeen, Liverpool and London.

Ags has built a reputation over the years as an uncompromising country traditionalist in an era when the pop and rock incarnations of country music are enjoying a surge of popularity. He still continues to defend the last outpost of the genre's traditional roots, leading to plaudits from reviewers and punters alike.

Wrong Again was released in November 2019 and was described by Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 as "modern day traditionalism of the very, very best kind". As with his previous two albums, Wrong Again was named Album of the Month by Country Music People magazine while being described by songwriting legend Tom Russell as "killer".

Meanwhile, US music publications Billboard and Glide Magazine respectively praised his "deep and emotive vocals" and branded the album "a must listen" for fans of real deal country music.

Doors open for the County Hotel at 7.30 pm on Thursday and tickets can be bought at WJ MacDonald Butchers on Francis St for £10, or are available for £12 at the door.
