Acoustic Gallagher will be performing live at the Heart of Hawick as part of their Scottish tour.
The band have a passion for the song-writing talents of Manchester singer song-writer Noel Gallagher.
They will play classics and B-sides from Oasis and High Flying Birds, including Wonderwall Champagne Supernova, The Masterplan, If I had a Gun, What a Life, and of course, Don’t Look Back in Anger – all played in a laid back and ambient style that is a little different from the original but still have the ability to sing your heart out too and relive some of the moments!
The five piece band consists of Craig Murray (vocals), Mark Sheridan (guitar), Stevie Turnbull (acoustic), Stuart Wilson (percussion) and Terry Colwell (harmonica).
Acoustic Gallagher’s style is developed from the time Noel Gallagher was in the period of performing solo in 2006.
Noel performed an intimate gig at the Union Chapel in London for the Mencap Little Noise Sessions - performing with Gem Archer and Terry Kirkbride in a slightly right side of an unplugged gig (as it isn’t fully acoustic). The band have taken this style, added some more instrumentation and forwarded it to include a greater range of Noels song writing greatness!
This is set to be a night of great music, mixed with an audience in fine voice...not to be missed!
Acoustic Gallagher live is at the Heart of Hawick on November 17 at 7pm.
Tickets £12 are available from www.heartofhawick.co.uk.
