Damien O'Kane is an award-winning, well-renowned Irish folk musician and singer, now living in Barnsley since his marriage to Barnsley's folk songstress Kate Rusby. Since Kate's father was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012 (now recovered), Damien was compelled to do something to raise both awareness and money for the cause.

It's a long time coming but, this event is in O'Kane's words, "...hopefully the first of many where we can raise awareness of this disease through the power of folk music. Raising awareness of any cancer brings all cancers to the fore and music brings people together, this creates discussion. I've invited some of the best folk musicians and singers to come and perform at the event and the evening will conclude with Kate Rusby and her band.

The most recent figures from Prostate Cancer UK infographics state that 1 in 8 men will get Prostate Cancer in their life, 47,000 men are diagnosed across the UK every year. These figures are staggering and we can all do a bit to help bring the numbers down. I've created our very own #FolkProstateCancer so I urge people to get tweeting, facebooking and on their social medias and remember to include the hashtag."
