The Riverbank House Hotel rocked and rolled to the sound of Wexford-born guitar legends Robbie Furlong and Bernie Barrett who returned to their home town from Dublin and Philadelphia, respectively, to entertain a large and enthusiastic local crowd.

The duo were ably assisted by the equally legendary drummer Bill Doyle who played on the 'house band' M.6 with music stalwarts Andrew Smith (keyboards and guitar), James O'Sullivan (fiddle and guitar), Phil O' Byrne (bass), Johnny Dunne (vocals and guitar) and Laura Roche (vocals).

The Wexford Guitar Legends dance gig showcased the enduring talents of Furlong who plays with Full Circle in Dublin, and Barrett, a musician based in Philadelphia, who returns to perform at special Wexford events.

There were also guest appearances by members of the Don Sadler Jazz Band. A raffle during the night raised money for Wexford Hospice Homecare.
