A musician described by the Guardian as ‘an acoustic blues virtuouso’ will play a special set in Derry next week.

Guitar player and vocalist Peter Price will travel from England to perform an intimate gig upstairs in Derry’s Grand Central Bar

Admission is free to the two hour set. Organiser Caolan McLaughlin says everyone who comes along to the evening is in for a musical treat.

“It is just luck that Peter is playing Derry as we’re catching him before he travels onto The Rory Gallagher festival where he is a very strong feature of the weekend. He brings to the stage that old blues acoustic style that you don’t hear much unless you stick a 1930’s recording of Robert Johnson or the likes on.

“Peter Price has a brilliant international reputation following a musical career that has so far taken him to festivals and concert venues throughout the UK, Europe and North America leaving people with an impression that they will never forget.

“A gifted performer, his concerts and performances take the listener on strange and exotic journeys from the country blues style of Robert Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, and Leadbelly; to Latin American dances, Celtic Pipe and Harp tunes, Hymns and Indian Ragas. His performances demonstrate a mind- boggling mastery of the acoustic guitar, a rich singing voice, and a relaxed yet compelling stage presence. Peter’s performances have delighted audiences worldwide and guarantee an evening not to be missed.”

Following Peter’s performance there will be a funky jive disco with none other than The Lizard Lounge Sound System.

Peter will perform on Tuesday May 27 at 9pm in the Grand Central Bar.
