Richard Hawley (Solo)
The Ulster Hall
Monday 10 October, 8.00pm
The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival is delighted to finally present this rescheduled show – a truly iconic artist in one of the city’s most historic venues.
Pre-COVID, 2020 had been a landmark year for Richard with his ninth studio album, Further, slamming into the UK album charts at No.3
in the same year he celebrated his twentieth anniversary as a solo artist.
In the two decades that have elapsed since Hawley jettisoned band life, first with The Longpigs and then as Pulp’s guitarist, the 54-year-old
songwriter has forged one of the most singular and diverse careers in modern music.
His ability to cut across styles, time and, in some instances, place, is down to Hawley’s deep and intuitive understanding of music itself, his grounding stemming back to his childhood when his father, a musician himself, introduced Richard to country, blues and rock’n’roll.
His appearance in Belfast promises to be a special show from a musician that has a knack for creating poignant and powerful songs like
Tonight the Streets are Ours and The Ocean.
