Friday Night Live, bring a bottle, sit back, relax and enjoy the best affordable live music in town!

Anthony Toner returns to one of his favourite venues for Friday Night Live with his trademark intimate acoustic show, (for two dates!), and his 12th album, a collection of brand new songs to add to his huge back catalogue.

The collection, entitled Six Inches of Water, has been inspired by east Belfast, where he has lived for the last decade, and the city in general, with the title track being a story set against the backdrop of the lovely old Corporation Baths at Templemore Avenue.

In addition, Anthony will of course be playing songs from throughout his 20-year career, including ‘Cousins at Funerals’, ‘Sailortown’, ‘Well Well Well’, ‘The Road to Fivemiletown’ and many more. As always, expect some fine guitar playing and singing, and some entertaining between-song banter and stories from the road.
