Join RVACC for a FREE performance in Drumceatt Square just outside Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre GARY LUTTON and MICKEY CURRIE.
In 2015, Gary won Sky Arts’ Guitar Star and toured with Thomas Leeb, Nitin Sawhney and many others. He then completed his PhD in music at Ulster University and formed the fusion/world group Dionys.
As a guitarist, composer and researcher based in Belfast, Gary blends contemporary fingerstyle guitar techniques with improvisational approaches borrowed from jazz and world music genres.
For this performance, Gary is joined by bassist Michael Currie–a stalwart member of the local music scene and founding member of Dionys. Together they create a rich, dynamic texture, focusing on soul, funk and contemporary jazz. Expect to hear intricate arrangements from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Etta James and Georgie Benson with an added dose of improvisation.
