Leslie Rich: My History Of The North, June 1
Music starts 8pm. $12 advance, $15 door. TICKETS
Leslie Rich is a singer-songwriter from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has been the principle songwriter for Celtic bands, A Little Of The Ready and Hounds Of Finn and currently fronts the rock band, Leslie Rich & The Rocket Soul Choir.
On My History Of The North he says -
“I think most people just consider me from Ireland, and whatever the picture-postcard version of that is. The thing is, I’m not. I’m from Belfast. Belfast in the 70’s could be a harsh place to live. The music that political and cultural climate spawned was something a little special and continues to be.
I want to share with you the stories, images, songs and poetry that created MY history of the North and how its music influenced my own and ultimately landed me in Minnesota.”
This show was previously performed to a sold out audience at the Warming House in Minneapolis.
