‘IRISH SOUL’ – with Ciaran Mac Gowan
‘IRISH SOUL’ – with Ciaran Mac Gowan – appearing at The Marsh Theatre, Berkeley; Friday Jan. 18th. - $10 - From Ireland, - the man who has opened for Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Arlo Guthrie, Nancy Griffith, Richard Thompson, John Martyn, Iris deMent, Christy Moore . . . Yes!, and if you like those artists you’ll like Ciaran. Never thrusting himself into the international spotlight but rubbing shoulders with such great names, we have the unbridled pleasure of welcoming him back to the Marsh. His last concert (November 14th ) was a fabulous success and we expect a sell-out crowd for this date, so mark your calendars! He comes with his four piece rock-and-soul outfit of MacGregor, Baum and Vansson (Irish, French and American) delivering a dynamic range of original soul, jazz, blues and heart-breaking Irish ballads – essentially the quintessential contemporary Irish musician whose tracks are playing on the BBC and Irish commercial stations. You’ll be rockin’ and you’ll be cryin’ – so the house bar has anticipated a grand supply of Guinness and Irish Coffee! Come experience this passionate musician with a warm stage personality, a rich voice and an unearthly talent for whistling!
