This March at The Crescent we are thrilled to present the third edition of Belfast Guitar Night featuring Adrian Nation.
Adrian Nation has been described by Maverick Magazine as “an acoustic guitar master” and Rock Society Magazine commented “it’s hard to believe there’s only one man on stage” and with his fourth album making noises internationally it now seems justifiable recognition is afoot.
The last few years has seen Adrian touring in Canada on 3 occasions as well as in Europe and across his native UK. His latest release Anarchy and Love hit the top ten albums of 2017 on the CKUA Radio Network in Alberta plus he recevied a nomination for album of the year at Folkwords in the UK. Mike Davies at Folk Radio UK says “Following on from his live album, Nation’s fourth album is a masterpiece of political fire and emotional power, not to mention exemplary guitar work”
Renowned as he is for his guitar playing with original compositions such as Five Finger Rapids and Carpe Meridianus, his songwriting cannot be overlooked. A true storyteller, picture painter and landscape sculptor, his live shows are always marked by laughter, rapt attention and often tears as the songs carry the listener on a journey hard to resist. One reviewer said there is “the sense of a guitar player merging with a lyricist of absolute and envious talent.”
This is one event not to be missed as we welcome this incredible talent to Belfast!
