Last season, we heard your cries of despair as I Love Rock-n-Roll Vol. I came to a close. We heard you shouting “Ozzy! Def Leppard! Freebird!!” and then, we knew. We had to finish what we started. Get ready for round two. Dust off your vintage concert-t’s. Classic Rock. ‘Nuff said.
Those over 40- start head-banging-conditioning-exercises now.
Arranmore has become a “home away from home” for so many people (and horses). We welcome you back for one more chance to rock the lawn. Dance away at “Our House…in the middle of the field”. Jam out to Daughtry, Edward Sharpe, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Miranda Lambert, Flo Rida and Bruce Springsteen and more artists that have paid homage to idea of “home sweet home”. Let’s close the season out with grass stains on our feet and enough CabCab energy to get us through another winter.
