Simon McBride | Doors 8pm
"One of the most expressive & articulate guitarists in the world" Guitarist magazine.
On hearing his latest album Crossing The Line, American magazine ‘Performer’ was prompted to say “The Holy Trinity of Belfast rock ‘n roll – Van Morrison, Rory Gallagher & Gary Moore – might just be on the verge of becoming a four-leaf clover.” Soon after, he was invited by Don Airey (Deep Purple, Gary Moore) to play guitar on his latest album, including a special medley of songs in tribute to the late Gary Moore. Don’s previous guest guitarist was none other than Joe Bonamassa. Rewind to the early-’90s, and you didn’t have to squint to spot future greatness in the unassuming kid from Belfast, who picked up his first guitar at ten and eschewed formal lessons to bend his fingers around the music of Free, Jeff Beck and Hendrix.
He has supported such great names as Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck and Joe Bonamassa and played major festivals around Europe. Now it’s his turn. Step-forward a new world-class talent. "Ireland has a knack of throwing up diamonds, of which McBride most definitely is one... this boy's going places." HIFI+
