Fri 27 SeptemberThe Songs Of Van Morrison
Joe Creighton is without doubt Australia’s most formidable and respected bass players and has worked for artists such as John Farnham for 13 years, Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue and currently The Black Sorrows.
There is not an artist in this country that hasn’t used Joe’s skills on their albums in the capacity of bass player but with his new show Into the Mystic Joe takes to centre stage where he belongs, to effortlessly recreate the feeling of those heady times of Van Morrison.
“Joe Creighton gives one of the best readings of a Van Morrison song that I have heard.” Brian Wise, Music Journalist. Rhythms Magazine and 3RRR
Joe and his 7-piece band take the audience on a journey that begins in the 60’s and moves through the decades encompassing Morrison’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. You will wind and weave through the ages bringing back to life the soundtrack of people’s lives and Joe is eminently qualified to interpret the music of Van Morrison having grown up in Belfast in the 60s at the time of great turbulence and political unrest that was set to a backdrop of the mystical music of Van Morrison and Them.
“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 on ‘Gloria’, the excited crowd nearly raised the roof!” Maireid Sullivan – Irish Reveiw
