I’m delighted to bring you our latest single release. 

“Life Goes So Fast” was written by Gerard Dornan, singer and keyboard player from the well known Northern Ireland duo “Country Harmony”.  Country Harmony  feature regularly as the band on Hugo Duncan’s outside broadcasts for BBC Radio Ulster, and have toured Northern Ireland extensively over the past two decades. The track was arranged and produced by Wayne Thorose, at Ballyrose Media Studios, where I’m also currently working on new recordings that I’m very excited about, including some new original material.

RIP Brian Coll, Country Legend

The words “Legend” and “Star” get thrown around a lot these days.

Ireland lost a true legend and a real star yesterday with the passing of the great Brian Coll.

Brian was simply untouchable as a vocalist, and always kind and generous with his time and advice anytime I met him.

Take a few minutes today to have a listen to some of Brian’s recordings, You won’t be disappointed.

My Deepest sympathies to Kathy and the extended Coll family.

May Brian Rest in Peace  Read more


I’m delighted to bring you a brand new single for 2020, a cover of an old favourite of mine, “The Wild Colonial Boy”. It’s a song that I have wanted to record for a very long time, and I’m delighted that I recently got the chance to get back into the studio with the brilliant Wayne Thorose, to put it down!

It’s now exclusively available to hear on your favourite radio stations by request, but it will be on all the usual digital platforms in the coming days!


Thanks you all for your continued support, I can’t wait to get out on the road playing for you all again.

Gerry Guthrie & Friends – Enniscrone 2020

The incredible success story around the 2019 ‘Gerry Guthrie & Friends Weekend of Dancing’ at the award winning 4-star Diamond Coast Hotel, Enniscrone, Co. Sligo, set the stage very early-on for a much-anticipated return visit in 2020.  Responding to feedback, Gerry will be returning to the same location this year for his sixth annual ‘Gerry Guthrie & Friends Dancing Weekend’.  Enniscrone is in a beautiful picturesque setting, located just 10 miles from Gerry’s home town of Ballina in Co. Mayo.


The eagerly awaited 2020 ‘Gerry Guthrie & Friends Weekend of Dancing’ takes place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th March 2020, with an impressive line-up of popular artists.


Friday 6th March 2020:

From 9.30pm:  Stuart Moyles, Jimmy Buckley & Band, plus Gerry Guthrie & Band from 11.30pm


Saturday Afternoon:  7th March 2020

People wishing to attend on any of the three days are welcome to do so; admission is €15 on Friday & Saturday nights and €12 on Sunday afternoon (children under 14 free on Sunday).


Such is the remarkable popularity of Gerry’s ‘Weekend of Dancing’ that the package, which includes accommodation, meals at the hotel and admission to all shows, has sold out for some considerable time. There may be availability locally at the other Hotels, Guest Houses or Bed & Breakfast accommodation.  If there is difficulty in sourcing accommodation locally, people could check with establishments in Ballina.


Enniscrone is a small seaside town, a perfect place to stop off for a dance when driving the wild Atlantic Way, or visiting the stunning championship links course for a game of golf, with its well-positioned championship holes routed through spectacular dunes.  Walkers would also enjoy this beautiful area.


The Diamond coast borders three miles of golden sandy beaches and is about ten miles travelling distance from Ballina and less than an hour from Sligo, Westport and Knock. There are many scenic drives locally; the route to Ballina via the Coast Road follows the course of the famed River Moy as it meanders its way to the Atlantic Ocean. The ‘Gerry Guthrie & Friends Weekend of Dancing’ in The Diamond Coast Hotel, Enniscrone is the perfect place for a break or a romantic escape.

New 12 Track Album!!


Next week sees the release of a wonderful new heart-warming 12-track CD from Gerry Guthrie entitled ‘Walking In The Sunshine’.  This unique album celebrates Gerry’s love of country music, and when country singers get it right, it is often the sentimental songs; saluting the audience and radio listeners and acknowledging the ups and downs of everyday life that are most popular.  

 This is Gerry’s fifth studio album; it contains some well-aged songs and includes his popular single releases ‘Did She Mention My Name’, If I Had You To Have and To Hold’, ‘Tequila Sheila’, and his most recent single ‘Walking in the Sunshine’.  It also includes a track entitled ‘The Old Guitar’, which is very special for two reasons.  Firstly, for Gerry it is an important part of his real life story, and secondly, it was written especially for him by his manager Henry McMahon, a gifted songwriter and wordsmith, known far and wide as ‘The man with the golden pen’.

The album features Gerry on two contrasting duets; the classic Merle Haggard song ‘The Fighting Side Of Me’ with Matt Leavy, in addition to a beautiful version of ‘We Will Meet Again’ with Sandy Kelly.

 Throughout his career, Gerry has consistently identified and recorded hidden gems from the country music back catalogue.  This trend continues with this album, which features ‘When The World Has Turned You Down’ written and first recorded by country legend Ernest Tubb.  This song was also covered by celebrated country artists Waylon Jennings and Vern Gosdin. Gerry has given it a modern feel and added his own winning formula in delivering the song.

The album also includes an original waltz, ‘Life Goes So Fast’,penned for Gerry by singer/songwriter Gerard Dornan.  It has all the hallmarks of a classic.

Fans keen to purchase this exciting new album may buy a copy at one of Gerry’s forthcoming shows, in music shops, online outlets or from his website
