Irish Heartbeat (Van Morrison Tribute, 3/14)

Music Director: Jay Martini

March 14, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A Tribute to the Music of Van Morrison

As a small child in Belfast, future superstar Van Morrison used to love listening to his father’s Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, Mahalia Jackson and Leadbelly records. He became a travelling musician at age 13 and formed “Them” in 1964 at 19. From then on, it was simply impossible to categorize him in any traditional musical category. You want pop? Gloria. Top 40? Domino. Iconic song played at every social function known to man? Brown-Eyed Girl. But that merely scratches the surface. Van Morrison’s complete understanding of the gospel, jazz & R&B idioms makes the prospect of forging a tribute show to the Belfast Cowboy a wonderful challenge.
