Following their sold out show at the Ulster Hall earlier this year Celtic Soul will be bringing their celebration of our very own Sir Van Morrison back to the Black Box. With songs from Them days through to Astral Weeks and Avalon Sunset this is a hit and album-track packed 2 1/2 hr show.

Receiving critical acclaim from devout Vanatics wherever they perform, you’ll hear the big hits like Days Like This and Brown Eyed Girl as well as album tracks like Ballerina, The Philosopher’s Stone and Cyprus Avenue.

With years of playing in blues, folk, trad and jazz bands, these seven musicians have the ingredients to deliver Van’s music authentically. They 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!
