Singer songwriter Anthony Toner makes a return visit to Ballymoney Town Hall on Thursday 3 April as part of a short spring tour of Northern Ireland to support his recent album, Sing Under the Bridges - and also to showcase some new songs from his forthcoming album project.
Sing Under the Bridges, his fifth album, has attracted strong airplay and response from audiences and critics alike - even being shortlisted for the Northern Ireland Music Prize in November 2013.
Songs like ‘The Road to Fivemiletown’ and ‘Things Fall Apart’ have followed a string of radio successes - his composition ‘Sailortown’ has become one of Northern Ireland radio’s most requested songs.
Other recent radio hits have included ‘Marion, That’s All Right’, ‘The Duke of Oklahoma’, ‘Walking Down the Line’ and ‘Well Well Well’, which was featured on Ulster Television’s weather bulletins, sponsored by Progressive Building Society, for an extended period.
Audience members always enjoy Anthony’s live performances - his shows include superb guitar playing, background information on the inspiration behind the material, and some entertaining stories from the road. Find out more at www.anthonytoner.net
