Pierce Turner Presents Terrible Good Concert #4
Ferrybank South, Wexford, Y35 X5HF, Ireland
Terrible Good Concert #4 will be his annual Christmas show at The Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday 22nd December
For this performance Pierce is bringing the majestic Band that performed with him to capacity crowds, and multiple standing ovations. His current album ‘Terrible Good’, which received a four star review in the Irish Times, and was ‘Album of the Week’ on RTE, is developing ‘classic’ status amongst Turner fans, and hearing them reproduced live is nothing less than thrilling.
Terrible Good featured an all star line-up of New York musicians, and was produced by fellow transplanted Irish man, Gerry Leonard. The album strongly features Leonard’s guitar work, not that dissimilar to his work with David Bowie, whom he played with for his final eight years. This sublime guitar work will be brilliantly replicated at the Riverbank on December 22nd by the Dublin/Wexford guitarist, Cillian Byrne, a thrill for all you guitar aficionados. Cillian and his Brother Lorcan Byrne (Drums), also known as Basciville, are the core of Pierce’s Band, both of them also providing perfect backing vocals. Mary Barnecutt from Hull is featured on Cello and virtuoso Dublin Bassist, Bill Bergin finishes out this perfect line-up.
The highly respected engineer, Olchan Kirwan will mix the sound out front.
“Terrible Good seeks to find grace, at times folding in the spacier end of the Stones, and the sensual R&B aesthetic of Marvin Gaye” The Irish Times **** – 25/2/22
“Easily one of the most important Irish artists of the last twenty years”. The Irish Times
“He has created what I would confidently believe to be the finest body of work in contemporary Irish Music” Liam Fay, Hot Press.
