Nerve Centre Announces Workshop with Steve Vai

In his only appearance of this kind in Northern Ireland this year, American guitar legend Steve Vai will host an intimate workshop at the Nerve Centre this month, as part of the UK City of Culture celebrations.

For a limited audience on Wednesday 28 August the solo six-string master will deliver an evening of demonstration and discussion, as well as giving insight into his own extraordinary playing techniques.

Marty McGill, Nerve Centre music programme manager, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming a real life music legend to the Nerve Centre. A lot of musicians from Derry~Londonderry would hold up Steve Vai and Joe Satriani as key influences, including many of the people who set up the Nerve Centre in the first place! In a way, Steve’s music has been one of the drivers behind our programmes for music education and talent development.”
