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

Wilfie Gilbert must be one of the most under-exposed, self-effacing legends of the Northern Irish singer songwriter scene and we are delighted to welcome him to Ards Arts Centre for our first post-pandemic Friday Night Live!

His first full album (Miners Gold) was released to critical acclaim in March 2019, Wilfie has a back catalogue of material displaying strong Americana and authentic folk influences and a new collection of songs coming in early 2022.

Expect an evening of acoustic excellence and songs to touch the soul.
