This November we are delighted to welcome to The Crescent, Blues guitar legend Ronnie Greer!
Blues guitar legend Ronnie Greer has been at the centre of the Irish blues scene for over forty years. His distinctive style, merging visceral Chicago blues licks with jazz inspired lines and chord voicings, has been critically acclaimed as world class.
Ronnie returns to The Crescent with his powerhouse band, featuring some of the country’s finest musicians; Anthony Toner, guitar and vocals, John McCullough, keyboards, Peter McKinney, drums and Ronnie O’Flynn, bass guitar.
Joining the band as special guest, the brilliant Ken Haddock, one of the most powerful and emotive singers ever to come out of Northern Ireland.
Expect a night of blues, roots and a little jazz based music, played with style and conviction by some of the best in the business.
