Friday 2 October line up

Music on the Hill, Friday 2 October, Red Hill Pavilion, doors open 7pm.

Andy White, Ruby Whiting.

Irish singer-songwriter and author Andy White carries a 12-string guitar under his arm and wears his particular brand of charm on his sleeve. With the political edge of Billy Bragg, the romance of David Gray and the Celtic lyricism of the Waterboys. Andy is a fully paid up 21st Century Troubadour (and that’s the title of his journal-memoir published by Lagan Press in Ireland and last year’s ‘album of the book’ compilation on his UK label, Floating World). Belfast born and raised, now living in Melbourne, White has earned a global following for blending folk and pop stylings with a poet’s sensibility. Working with the great names of Irish music – Sinead O’Connor, Donal Lunny, Van Morrison – and writing with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Neil and Tim Finn, Andy has won Ireland’s top songwriting awards and toured the world many times over.

Local singer songwriter Ruby Whiting will open the night at 7.30pm. Tasty light platters, wines and beer available.

Tickets available here.
