Damien Leith to headline Koroit Irish Festival


Aussie balladeer Mike Brady and Irish-born pop star Damien Leith will be headline acts at this year’s Koroit Irish Festival on May 1-3.

As well as performing, Brady has the added honour of being the Koroit Irish Festival Ambassador for 2015.

As part of his duties in this role Brady will lead the street procession on Saturday of the festival, a colourful affair that sees members of the Koroit community carry the 32 Irish county flags down the main street.

He will also be a special guest at the festival’s opening night on Friday, an event that attracts a full house to the Koroit Theatre.

Leith was the 2014 festival ambassador and produced a stunning show that, for many, was a feature of the weekend.

Last year’s festival ambassador Damien Leith makes a popular return.

Koroit Irish Festival committee member Leon Carey said having both Brady and Leith coming to Koroit was a huge win for the festival.
