Saturday 14 November, 7.30pm
Singer songwriter John Reilly and Canadian pianist and songwriter Lewis Nitikman grew up on different sides of the Atlantic, but listening to the music of Elton John and realising that these tunes had a profound effect on both of their musical careers, which led to this series of concerts which have been played throughout the country over the last few years. Sometimes they also add the timeless songs of Billy Joel to their repertoire and are very much looking forward to bringing this show to Trinity Arts Centre.
The concert is not a tribute, but a celebration of the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. John Reilly, whose albums have received both national and international air play, sings the songs very accurately, but in his own inimitable style and also plays percussion and harmonica, Lewis Nitikman, who is Berkelee trained and has produced 3 gold albums in Canada, plays piano and bass keyboards.
This will be a truly unique evening of stunning vocals and outstanding piano, It is a totally live performance, expect to hear all your favourite Elton and Billy tunes including 'Your Song', ‘Piano Man’, 'Daniel', ‘Uptown Girl’, Candle in the Wind', ‘New York State of Mind’,'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' etc., but also some you may not be so familiar with. It’s not a tribute, it’s a true celebration of these wonderful tunes.
Tickets: £15, £14
