Leprechauns and lake monsters. Bagpipes and Blarney Stone. Guinness and gallons of whisky. It's impossible to choose a favourite when Scotland & Ireland go head to head. Hence you need to do them both. And there's no better way than John Howie's Ireland and Scotland Music Tour 2018. Enjoy the best scenery and wonderful music enroute to all these fabulous places.

From John Howie - I can’t believe it’s 23 years since I started taking tour groups to Ireland & Scotland! Over the years I’ve had the greatest pleasure, with my groups, enjoying the scenery, music, history, & cuisine of these two stunningly beautiful countries. Also, I’ve loved meeting the local people. Ireland & Scotland definitely have more than their fair share of colourful ‘characters’…people who love to tell stories, sing songs, and have fun.

Beccy Cole has been at the forefront of Australian Country Music for 20 years, and is well-known for her outstanding high-energy live performances. As well as being a great singer, guitarist and songwriter, she is an accomplished comedienne. She has won many awards, including 9 Golden Guitar awards in Tamworth. Beccy has toured with Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Tom T Hall, The Bellamy Brothers, Glenn Campbell and Don McLean. A working single mother, she has always had the ability to laugh in the face of adversity. Better still, she’s been able to write great songs about her life experiences and share them with the world.

Libby O’Donovan is a “powerful and sassy performer” (Sydney Morning Herald), renowned for her nuanced interpretations and extraordinary voice. She is a critically acclaimed Jazz and Cabaret performer and an award winning Musical Director.
