EastSide Sesions- Friday 28th April
Join EastSide Arts for April's Friday night gig at the EastSide Visitor Centre, featuring guitarists Gary Lutton and Gavin Ferris.
Gary Lutton is an instrumental acoustic guitarist from Belfast. As the winner of Guitar Star (2015) he had the opportunity to work with legends Rodrigo y Gabriela, Mike Dawes & Paco Pena. Gary has also played with Thomas Leeb, Newton Faulkner, Jacques Stotzem, Chris Woods Groove and as part of Nitin Sawhney’s band. His unique style draws the listener into his world as he blends interesting percussive techniques with intricate harmonies, melody and the bass of a live band.
Belfast's own Gavin Ferris has been performing live for a number of years now and has been wowing audiences with his take on fingerstyle guitar playing. His music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. Playing a healthy mix of original compositions and unique arrangements, Gavin’s style encompasses many music forms, including Rock, Contemporary, Flamenco, Jazz and Blues, while still holding on to his Irish traditional roots. With his unique sound and striking stage presence, Gavin has carved out a reputation as a one of Northern Ireland’s top performers.
Two excellent, emerging young EastSide Emerging performers, John Andrews and MossBound, will warm up for Gary and Gavin.
