Eric Bell Trio

Please note this is an afternoon show.

In 1969 Eric Bell walked into a bar in Dublin, ordered a pint and settled down to watch a band play. Two of the members of that band were Brian Downey and Phil Lynott. He was knocked out by what he saw and he asked them to form a band with him. Both duly obliged and within weeks Thin Lizzy was born.

Eric will be joining us for an afternoon show with two new musicians – Phil Smyth on bass, and Matt Hewer on drums. The band will be playing early classic Thin Lizzy tracks from the period of Eric’s time in the band, along with blues classics and songs from his subsequent, highly acclaimed solo albums.
