AdrianLegg-long horiz crop FINAL

Adrian Legg confirmed for LiveWire

Guitar master Adran Legg will be appearing as part of the LiveWire Workshops later this year. Date TBC

Guitar magazine observes how Adrian Legg is “impossible to categorize as a player.” True indeed. And that’s largely because he defies easy categorization as a person.

Renowned and awarded for his unique amalgamation of acoustic and electric guitar and how he blends diverse musical styles and inspirations into a distinctive sound all his own, Legg has been hailed as “one of the wizards” of the guitar (Philadelphia Enquirer), “an adventurer” (Newsday) and “a genius” (Los Angeles Reader). In addition to his distinguished career as a live performer, recording artist and composer, he is an innovator in guitar design and amplification technology, an instructor, photographer, writer and author, witty and engaging between song onstage raconteur, and an at large commentator for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” among other gifts, pursuits and interests. Hence it’s no wonder that What’s Up magazine hails London-born Legg as “the greatest British import since Newcastle Brown Ale.”

Rob Harris Pro

Jamiroquai’s Rob Harris to appear at LiveWire Workshops

Rob Harris is set to appear in Belfast this year as part of the LiveWire Workshops.

Rob is best known as the guitarist in arguably the world’s biggest funk band Jamiroquai; but has also worked on countless sessions with artists spanning the globe, including Kylie Minogue, Take That’s Mark Owen, Gary Numan, Beverly Knight and The Pasedena’s…

Rob’s playing experience is not just confined to the world of pop and funk; he is also the possessor of first-rate rock and blues chops and has played many a session and live performance with keyboard legend Don Airey (Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Gary Moore etc and currently with Deep Purple) alongside such players as Bernie Marsden and Uli Jon Roth. Coupled with an intimate playing knowledge of Jazz, Rob is the essence of versatility and professionalism.
