Anthony Toner: An Evening of John Prine Songs
As legendary singer songwriter John Prine turns 70, one of his biggest fans – singer songwriter Anthony Toner – offers an evening in celebration of the man and his unique music. An intimate, solo show in which Anthony will play a selection of his favourites from the back catalogue - and show why Prine, one of the finest writers of his generation, remains such an influence. Expect some fine picking and singing, and an evening of classics – everything from ‘Sam Stone’ and ‘Spanish Pipedream’ to ‘Lake Marie’, ‘Hello In There’ and ‘Speed of the Sound of Loneliness’.
Born in Coleraine and now based in Belfast, Anthony Toner is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular and acclaimed songwriters and guitarists – his back catalogue includes seven albums, and songs such as ‘Sailortown’, ‘Well Well Well’ and ‘The Road to Fivemiletown’. This year has seen him extend his audience with shows across Scotland and England, performing solo and as special guest of Barbara Dickson, and he’s working on material for a brand new album - to be released early in 2017.
