Sat 09 AugustVan Morrison Birthday Tour
Joe Creighton will be bringing his show Into the Mystic – The Music of Van Morrison to The Yarraville Club on Saturday August 9th to coincide with Van Morrison’s birthday on August 31st. Joe was born and raised in Belfast at the same time and on the same streets as Morrison so this strong connection and authenticity has seen this show sell-out across the country every time it plays.
“Joe Creighton gives one of the best readings of a
Van Morrison song that I have heard” – Brian Wise, Triple R
Throughout his illustrious career Joe Creighton has shared the stage with Kylie Minogue, Olivia Newton-John, and Ray Charles, John Farnham (13 years) Boz Scaggs, Sir George Martin and many well know local Australian artists.
This 8 piece extraordinary features The Belfast Horns which is led by the legendary Jimmy Slogett who has played with some of the greats including Max Merritt and The Meteors, Andy Cowan, Johnny O’Keefe and Ray Charles.
This show will take you on a journey that begins in the 60’s and moves through the decades encompassing Van’s worldwide hits with a sprinkling of some of the more mystical poetic songs from the ‘Astral Weeks’ album. The show pays homage to the music of a great Irish singer, songwriter and poet who is Van Morrison.
The audience will weave through the ages, bringing back to life the soundtrack of their lives
As soon as the band started playing, and Joe raised his voice, I felt in my bones that this was going to be a special experience. The band was in top exploratory form, digging deep into Van’s trademark Irish combo of jazz, R&B, blues, and pop, performing flawlessly on a wide cross-section of Van Morrison’s enormous repertoire. When he invited the audience to sing along to ‘Gloria’ the excited crowd nearly raised the roof! Maireid Sullivan – Tintean Irish Review
