Roots music even in the Arts Centre

One of the world's foremost roots music stalwarts graces the stage of Wexford Arts Centre next week.

Scott Ainslie, who will appear at the venue on Thursday, April 19, is a traditional musician widely regarded as an expert in Piedmont and Delta blues in addition to Southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo.

Having worked with Native Americans, Ainslie specialises in performing programmes based around the European and African influence on American music and culture. His live performances are not just about the music because he helps the audience explore the significance of music and songwriting in great detail.

Tickets for the gig, which gets under way at 8.30 p.m., can be booked through the Wexford Arts Centre box-office on 053-9123764 or through www.wexfordartscentre.ie
