• Anthony Toner & Band

    17 Feb



Anthony Toner (once memorably described as 'James Taylor meets John Prine in a second hand book shop') makes a return to The Lyric Theatre for a one-off concert appearance with a band to celebrate the release of his ninth album, Our Lady of the Wind and Rain.

Since the release of the hugely popular single ‘Sailortown’ ten years ago, Anthony has been constantly in forward motion, releasing a string of popular albums and playing countless live performances, where his between-song storytelling and patter have become just as much part of the show as the music. Along the way he has chalked up a string of memorable songs, including ‘Well Well Well’, ‘The Duke of Oklahoma’, ‘East of Louise’ - and recently ‘An Alphabet’, a moving song inspired by his father’s Alzheimer’s condition.

Expect an evening of peerless musicianship, great stories and songs old and new.

Anthony Toner will be joined by special guest, Manchester performance poet, Tony Walsh (aka Longfella), writer of This is the Place.

Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes (including interval)
