The award-winning Celtic Soul return to the Ardhowen with their definitive tribute to Van Morrison.
Following a sell-out performance at Belfast’s Ulster Hall in 2019 they went on to receive an IMRO Gold Award for their performance in Radio Ulster’s Astral Weeks special.
They continue to receive critical acclaim from devout Vanatics wherever they perform and have continued their success with shows across Ireland.
With years of playing in blues, folk, trad and jazz bands, the seven-piece band have the ingredients to deliver Van’s music authentically. Expect to hear songs from right across Van’s musical history including the big hits as well as stand out album tracks.
Celtic Soul are: Clarke Wilson on Vocals and Saxophone, Ray McEvoy (Electric Guitar), Marcus McAuley (Acoustic Guitar), Rik Gay (Drums), Keith Ward (Piano and keyboards), Gerry McClurg (Trumpet) and Mark Crockard (Electric and Double Bass)
Let Celtic Soul take you on a journey through the songbook of our very own musical legend!
