R.H. Morris & Hector Qirko
Dave McLean of the Centenary Ats Cntre, Peel sent us this email:

"Hi folks, we are proud to present R.B. Morris and Hector Qirko at the Centre on Sunday 21st May at 8.00pm.

RB is a country/blues, singer/sonwriter from Knoxville, Tennessee appearing as part of the Bushys Big Wheel Bllues Festival, with credits including John Prine, Lucinda Williams, and Steve Earle to his name. I noticed this unsolicited testimolial on the Manx Bands website; "strongly suggest you get tickets for this. when the people at Laxey hear how good he is, the tickets will sell out in minutes. This guy is world class".

RB came to the island last year to visit friends, and played a couple of low profile gigs and seeing him then I thought he was brilliant! He is joined by Hector Qirko, a slinky country guitar player who is also a Professor of Anthropology in the USA!

Tickets are 7.50 and available from:
  • Celtic Gold, Peel
  • Peter Norris Music
  • Black and Blue, Castle St, Douglas
  • Shakti Man, Ramsey

    There are more details on www.centenarycentre.com

    Thank you for reading this!
