Double treat at Flowerfield

FLOWERFIELD welcomes back an old friend this Wednesday at 8pm as Kimmie Rhodes performs once again in the auditorium.

Presented by Frontier Promotions, the concert will feature the acclaimed Texas songwriter performing with Gabriel Rhodes on piano and guitar – and special guest, multi-instrumentalist Ruth Trimble.

Tickets are priced at £12, and they’re on sale from Flowerfield Arts Centre – you can also buy your tickets using your credit or debit card on (028) 7083 1400. The ticket price includes complimentary interval refreshments.

The tour is in celebration of Kimmie’s new CD release, Covers. Kimmie & Gabriel Rhodes are very excited to be joined by newest band member, multi-instrumentalist, Ruth Trimble.

Kimmie’s warm-hearted and entertaining shows have always gone down a storm with audiences in Portstewart, and this latest visit will be no exception.

She promises that along with treating the audience to her interpretations of timeless covers, like ‘Yesterday’, Rodney Crowell’s beautiful ‘Adam’s Song’ and other new additions to the set list, they will still be playing all the favorite self-penned songs, along with a couple of her newly written tunes for the fans!

Flowerfield is also delighted to welcome back Ralph McLean and BBC Radio Ulster for a special outside broadcast featuring a wonderful line-up of talent on Thursday.

Tickets for the two-hour live broadcast (8pm to 10pm) featuring live performances from The 4 of Us, Triona, Ciaran Lavery and John Deery andtheHeads are free, but be warned that they’re already starting to go fast.

This is the fourth year that Ralph and the BBC have broadcast live from Flowerfield, and it’s always an exciting occasion, with the BBC crew descending on the award-winning arts centre with satellite trucks and technicians all day to bring together a wonderful programme, going out live at 8pm to Ralph’s enormous radio and online audience across the world.

Headlining this year are The 4 of Us, currently touring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their smash hit album Songs for the Tempted. Also joining the bill are Ciaran Lavery – ahead of his concert at Flowerfield in May, the wonderful John Deery andtheheads and rising star Triona.

Tickets are free from (028) 7083 1400,
