From their mid-1980s ‘big music’ period through the influential mix of Celtic, gospel and country on their classic Fisherman’s Blues tours, The Waterboys have consistently blended tightness, inspiration and improvisation to reach heights of performance few other acts can.
The event is held Philharmonic Hall, 25 October, 8pm. See here for tickets.
Led by mercurial and brilliant Scottish guitarist/vocalist Mike Scott, the band features the established line-up of Memphis keyboard great ‘Brother’ Paul Brown, Irish electric fiddler Steve Wickham, ace British drummer Ralph Salmins and funky Irish bassman Aongus Ralston.
The popular reach of Waterboys music has never been greater. Their songs have been performed by artists as varied as Prince, The Killers, U2, Fiona Apple, Ellie Goulding, The War On Drugs, Dawes and The Mystery Jets, Rod Stewart and Tom Jones.
Few bands have as great a live reputation as The Waterboys and their music shows no sign of fading – come and feel the fire, and experience these classic songs played live by the originators!
