Former Ards Rugby player to play at the British Open


Peter Wallace and his band, The Russian Dolls, are backing the Songbirds, at the Player's Dinner on Saturday evening at the Open Golf Championship.

Peter's band and the Songbirds (Phillipa and Jolene O'Hara) played at the Ards Rugby Formal in 2017 at Clandeboye Lodge. Together they are getting a name for themselves as one of the best in the business, not only locally, but further afield.

Many of the members of The Russian Dolls are now appearing as the professional session musicians with international acts, e.g. Nathan Carter, Emily Flack (Canada), Van Morrison and Celtic Thunder's, Damien McGinty. Damien's latest album, recorded by Peter, got to number 1 in the American Billboard a few months ago.

Well done and good luck to Peter, The Russian Dolls and the Songbirds!
