Irish sensation Damien Leith will perform a one-off intimate concert at The Cube Theatre at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on April 2.

This popular and well-loved artist and his band will perform hits off his platinum selling albums sold during a nine year music career, which has propelled him to international fame.

Guests will also enjoy canapes and support acts with music by top WA Irish musicians.

The concert has been brought to BREC by the John Boyle O'Reilly Association of Bunbury, as part of an all-Irish weekend celebrating the life of O'Reilly and the South West's Irish heritage and culture.

O'Reilly was an active Irish Fenian, a secret society of rebels which led armed uprisings against British rule. He was captured and transported to Bunbury as a convict and escaped to America where he became a prominent, high profile spokesman for his country as editor of Boston newspaper The Pilot, while continuing to arrange the escapes of other Irish convicts from WA.

The celebratory weekend also includes a performance by well known Irish musician Sean Roache at 7pm at the Rose Hotel on April 1, with ticket sales at the door.

The weekend culminates with guided tours from 9.30am to 11.30am on April 3 at the John Boyle O'Reilly Memorial at Buffalo Road, Australind, which marks O'Reilly's hiding place while waiting to escape by whaling ship to America. A memorial celebration will follow at 11.30am.
