Lisburn’s favourite blues singer Ronnie Greer will be making a welcome return to the Island Arts Centre with special guest Richie Buckle on Friday February 19.
Blues guitar virtuoso Ronnie Greer has been at the centre of the Irish blues music scene for many years, having shared the stage with many distinguished artists including Dr John, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, and Memphis Slim.
Inspired by the classic combos of the 50s and 60s and the iconic Blue Note record label, Ronnie’s distinctive guitar style is played with an exhilaration and ferocity that has been critically acclaimed as world class.
Dubliner Richie is an exciting and much respected instrumentalist, and this will be his first appearance at the Island.
Add to the mix, Scott Flanigan on Hammond organ and Dominic Mullan on drums and you have the ideal line up for a virtuosic blend of blues, roots and jazz based music.
The show begins at 8pm and tickets, priced £12, are available by logging onto www.islandartscentre.com. Alternatively contact the Island Arts Centre box office on 028 92 509254 or Arts Information on 028 92 509509.
