Will Killeen live in Ballina

Widely regarded as Ireland’s finest acoustic blues export since Rory Gallagher, Will Killeen is considered to be one of the foremost slide guitar players in Europe. A dazzling finger-picking stylist, he also plays banjo and harmonica and sings with a voice steeped in early American blues.

Blues fans will get a chance to hear the maestro when he pops in to Ballina Arts Centre on Thursday October 27 at 8pm, for a special concert.

Born in Mayo, Killeen taught himself guitar from the age of 10. He was performed at countless venues and festivals around London and the rest of England, and tours regularly in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy, Germany and the United States. A unique Blues guitar-style shows influences from a mixture of country, Celtic, Eastern and rock music.

As well as being an accomplished exponent of raw blues, Will Killeen is also a very talented painter and a selection of his paintings will be on display in the week of his concert at Ballina Arts Centre. Will works in oils and specialises in portraits of blues and rock musicians. Doors open at 7.30pm and the concert starts at 8pm. Admission costs €12 / €10 (concession ).
