Waltons World Masters / RTÉ lyric fm Nationwide Gospel Competition Win the opportunity to perform at the National Concert Hall as support act for the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama!

Waltons World Masters / RTÉ lyric fm Nationwide Gospel Competition

Win the opportunity to perform at the National Concert Hall

as support act for the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama!

Waltons World Masters welcomes The Blind Boys of Alabama to Dublin and the National Concert Hall on Monday, 31 January 2011. Ireland has its own great tradition of gospel music, and one very special aspect of this concert is that the support act will be chosen from Irish gospel choirs and ensembles by a nationwide competition. The winning choir/ensemble will perform a set of up to 40 minutes’ duration before The Blind Boys of Alabama take to the stage.


All gospel choirs/ensembles – school, college, amateur and semi-professional – are welcome to enter.

The Competition

After all entries are received, a shortlist of three finalists will be chosen by a jury and materials forwarded to The Blind Boys of Alabama for their final decision.

The winning choir/ensemble will be announced by Liz Nolan on RTÉ lyric fm’s Lunchtime Classics programme on Friday, 7 January 2011, and will perform at the National Concert Hall on 31 January 2011 at 8 pm, as guest artists of The Blind boys of Alabama.  It is RTÉ lyric fm’s intention, subject to the availability of facilities, to record the concert for subsequent broadcast.

The winning choir/ensemble will be responsible for their own transport to/from the venue, as well as accommodation (if required). The choir/ensemble will receive five pairs of tickets to the concert for guests, but there will be no monetary remuneration.


Email or post your entry form with the required information and materials (email preferred!) to:

Stock Update: Epiphone Emperor Swingster Just in!

the NEW Epiphone Swingster are just in!

Available now online & in the shops.

Swing Like a Pro with the NEW Epiphone Swingster! World famous for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body guitars, Epiphone conjures up some of it’s past with the NEW Emperor Swingster. Starting with the same body and neck as used on their Emperor-II guitar and made famous by the jazz master himself, Joe Pass, Epiphone swings into action and turns it into a serious twangin’, rock-a-billy slingin’, country flingin’ machine!

Classic Construction with SwingBucker Pickups! With it’s hand-scalloped arched Spruce top combined with a laminated arched-back Maple body and glued-in 3-piece Hard Maple neck, the Swingster has what it takes to satisfy any professional’s demand for great tone. At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone’s NEW SwingBucker(tm) pickups and a series/parallel electronics switching package that outperforms all others in it’s class. Specially designed for the Swingster, the humbuckers offer no hum performance and feature classic Alnico-V magnets, enamel wire and over-wound coils for the perfect combination of warmth and bite.

Series/Parallel Switching. Two push/pull Tone controls allow you to change each pickup’s output individually from parallel to series wiring creating a palette of useful sounds to tap into ranging from warm humbuckers to “quacky” single-coil type sounds and everything in-between. Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style “wire” handle as preferred by “Certified Guitar Player” and legend, Chet Atkins.

But wait… there’s MORE! Unlike some, Epiphone spares no expense by adding a “pinned” tune-o-matic bridge with roller saddles for smooth operation and accurate return to pitch which is preferred when using a vibrato.

Loads of Bling. Topping it all off are Epiphone’s trademark, multi-bound headstock with the classic mother-of-pearl “vine” inlay, premium Grover(tm) tuners and a multi-bound, 20 fret Rosewood fingerboard with block inlay. Gorgeous!

If you’re ready for a professional guitar with unique features and a killer price tag, swing into a new Emperor Swingster today. Can you dig it? Oh yeah!
