An evening with Ariel Posen, Canadian singer, songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire will take place in Ashington.
Another fine night of great music will take place on Monday 2 July, at the real "Whitehouse" in Ashington. Music lovers (guitar players and aficianado's in particular) will know Ariel Posen as part of the much lauded and fast rising band Bros.Landreth.
Hailing from Winnipeg, Canada, Ariel is in his own name an outstanding singer, songwriter and exceptional guitarist of the very highest order. An all-star instrumentalist, Ariel's guitar playing has rightly attracted attention outside of the band. His soulful slide work, use of open tunings, and improvisational approach to the instrument are on full display in the online videos he's recorded with both "Anderton's Music" and "That Pedal Show"......well worth a taster watch on YouTube for sure. Ariel is returning to the UK with a trio after a successful national tour in February and a "Blues Cruise" with Bros.Landreth and Joe Bonamassa in March.... when approached for a show in Ashington in July.... absolutely jumped at the chance!

As if that is not enough to get you out, support on the evening is to be kindly provided by special guest Johnny Dickinson, Northumberland's own national guitar treasure and singer. Johnny is currently planning a busy year of national work and touring after an enforced gap due to illness; he's in fine fettle and form now and I'm honoured to grab a solo performance before his calendar rightly fills up.
An outstanding evening lies ahead in the Ashington delta with Ariel and Johnny (and maybe even both together!). Coming on the back of great earlier shows at the Whitehouse with Mike Farris (2016) and Joey Landreth (2017) rightly expecting this to be another cracking evening.
Following on from the sensational Joey Landreth gig last year and now looking forward to Ariel Posen in July then, who knows "we get one, we get the other, maybe we can get them all together"!!!!
