Anthony Toner (once memorably described as 'James Taylor meets John Prine in a second hand book shop') returns to The Portico of Ards to celebrate the release of his ninth album, Our Lady of the Wind and Rain. Since the release of the popular single ‘Sailortown’ ten years ago, Anthony has been in constant motion, releasing a string of popular albums and playing countless live performances, the songs interweaved with insightful, moving and funny stories. Along the way he has chalked up a string of memorable songs, including ‘Well Well Well’, ‘The Road to Fivemiletown’, ‘East of Louise’ and recently ‘An Alphabet’, a moving song inspired by his father’s Alzheimer’s condition. Expect an evening of peerless guitar playing and songs old and new.
