MUSIC is to the fore for the month of February at the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath.
First up is Cannon, Campbell, Watchorn and O’Connor, formerly of The Dubliners. In 2012 the legendary Irish folk group celebrated 50 glorious years in the music business by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Following the sudden death of founding member ‘Banjo’ Barney McKenna, the remaining members decided the band’s future. Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Patsy Watchorn and banjo virtuoso Gerry O’Connor decided to continue the legacy started in 1962. ‘The Boys’ are looking forward to entertaining and meeting all their old friends and fans in 2013 and will continue to play all the classic songs known the world over.
Next up on Sunday, February 17, is Norman Bowman and West End Friends. Following his sell out show in June, Norman returns to the Webster bringing some of his West End musical co-stars for an evening of musical theatre.
On Saturday, March 2, there is a real treat in store when Beyond the Barricade appears at the Webster for the first time. Recreating original West End/Broadway musical hit songs with amazing authenticity it features a cast of past principal performers from the West End production of Les Miserables, and the 25th Anniversary Concert at the 02 Arena. There will be songs from Miss Saigon, The Lion King, Phantom Of The Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar and many more, climaxing with a spectacular finale from Les Miserables!
