AS THE Atlantic Sessions Festival gets underway, Flowerfield Arts Centre offers a rare chance to see one of the legends of roots music on Friday November 13, as Chris Smither plays a gig in Portstewart as special guest of the Real Music Club.

Tickets for the 8pm show are priced at £18, which includes a complimentary glass of wine or fruit juice at the interval, and they’re on sale now from the Real Music Club website at, or from the reception desk at Flowerfield.

Smither played Cromore Halt back in the Music Station days and provided one of the most memorable gigs of their roster. His cosmic blues are on full display in his most recent album, Hundred Dollar Valentine, a brilliant amalgam made of equal parts past, present and future.
