A slice of nostalgia straight out of the 1960s swinging Showband scene, charting the long and varied career of one of Ireland’s most treasured and successful showband legends. Larry was the first Irish-based artist – to make the UK Pop Charts; to play NY’s Carnegie Hall; to draw a record crowd of 6,850 to the Galtymore Ballroom, London.

A social commentary on a rural Ireland grappling with change and emerging from an age of innocence but it shatters the sex-on-tap image of showbands. despite a number of heart attacks, a cancer fear and several attempts at retirement, Larry Cunningham is still singing in his 70s.

His story is a potpourri of humour, success, shady deals - as well as sadness, death and murder on the music scene
