Van the Man!
But then I was listening to a live album from Van Morrison recorded at Austin City Limits Festival a few years ago …. and I thought V! Perfect!
Van the Man as he's known here.
Belfast's greatest music export!
Notorious for walking off the stage if the audience are too noisy!
Uses almost all local musicians in his touring band.
Famous for Brown Eyed Girl ( I know her ... the girl it was based on),
And what about Gloria and Moondance.
I once saw him at our local blues festival playing in a 200 seater hall - Van approached the organiser and asked to play - his full 10 piece band including Hammond organ and 3 backing vocalists crammed onto the stage where we've put on workshops and the local pantomime happens every year! And it was the best gig I've ever been to. I hadn't been much of a fan of his until this but afterwards he just had me hooked.
Have a wee singalong while you're reading all your other blogs today.
