18John Lindsay Band w/ Siobhan Pettit |
On Saturday 18th June 2016, the Oh Yeah Centre plays host to John Lindsay and his band as they play songs from John's new album, What's Not to Love? John is an experienced singer-songwriter based in Carrickfergus who plays an amazing blend of country and contemporary folk that draws comparison to artists such as Paul Brady and Van Morrison.
The John Lindsay Band will be joined on the night by special guest vocalist, Siobhan Pettit who has received much acclaim over the years for her work with her own jazz quartet, numerous ensembles, and session work.
"The first inkling I had of John the songwriter, was a rendition of Across the World, over fifteen years ago. We were sitting in Donegal by the barbeque with his guitar and the sounds of the Atlantic as his accompaniment. Over the years I discovered many more of his songs and I am proud to be a part of encouraging him to record them. What I enjoy about John’s writing is you can take your own story from them, relate them to your life without changing his intent. He sings them as himself always, which makes a welcome change from the copycat voices we are surrounded with.
He writes from a personal aspect and has a unique stand point with influences that include the love of his family, to his experience during a time of huge change in Northern Ireland."
- Niamh Kavanagh, Winner of Eurovision 1993
"Anyone who listens to John's music will easily recognise the simple good humoured honesty with which he both writes his songs and delivers them. There is never an artificial moment in his musical world. That is not to say the songs are overly simple or artless; they are in fact skillfully crafted and often original in their use of structure and phrasing but this is achieved through his natural writing ability, and never through adherence to any learned formula."
- Brian Connor, pianist and music director

16Pierre Bensusan |
Legendary guitar virtuoso Pierre Bensusan brings his stunning talent to the Oh Yeah this November. A veteran of over 40 years, Pierre Bensusan has brought his unique genre-blending fusion of world music, classical, jazz and pop across the world to incredible acclaim from outlets such as Melody Maker and Guitar World (whose readers voted him Best World Music Guitarist).
Widely considered one of the greatest guitarists of the 21st Century, Bensusan has been described as a "genius" by fellow guitarist Jon Gomm and has been immortalised in the song "Bensusan" by Michael Hedges. His influence on modern guitar playing cannot be overstated and this is an unmissable opportunity to experience Bensusan's incredible talent first-hand.
"Bensusan is very much his own animal. It’s like listening to a butterfly, to dappled sunshine coming through quaking aspens. His music flits and darts around like fish in a pool. And his compositions manage to encompass both the calmness of the pool and the flashing of the fish. It’s an entrancing, almost hypnotic thing to watch and hear, as he seems eager to share his journey, his light. I was struck by how the aim of each song was to be beautiful. Not witty, not avant-garde, not new, necessarily, but beautiful. A great craftsman plying his trade. A shepherd with his flock. As I left I felt all of a sudden that I’d been to temple, my own sort of temple, and by the end of the service I felt purified, cleansed, and ready for the new year."
