Finbar Wright in Concert---Galway
FINBAR WRIGHT IN CONCERT
On May 1st a group of the Ballinasloe Active Retirement Association attended a Finbar Wright concert in the Town Hall Theatre in Galway. We enjoyed a wonderful evening of entertainment listening to Finbar’s beautiful singing and his talented group of backing musicians.
Finbar Wright is one of Ireland’s most accomplished singers and is also a very engaging and entertaining performer. He has won many accolades over the last twenty years at home and abroad. He is one of Ireland’s great singers of romantic songs and ballads. During the two hour concert he sang such favourites as “Whatever You Believe”, “How Great thou Art”, “Bright Blue Rose”, “La Bamba” and many more.
Finbar is a classically trained tenor and is also fluent in Spanish, Italian and French. He is very spiritual and always includes one piece, at least, of sacred music in every concert. Last night’s concert was no exception.
Our members were very appreciative of his wonderful performance. His easy style, vocal range and pleasant personality ensured a wonderful evening of song, memories of which will linger for some time to come.
