Singer Songwriter Brian Houston all set for the Alley

07 October 2022
This October the Alley Theatre in Strabane is delighted to welcome Brian Houston for a night of incredible music.
The irrepressible Brian Houston will take to the stage on Friday 28th October bringing his eclectic and joyful blend of music to Strabane. Houston encapsulates the spirit that makes independent music so important, exhibiting a prolific ability to turn out truly infectious songs that demand to be played over and over again.
A respected writer and performer Houston was hailed as "one of Britain's great songwriters!" by veteran DJ Bob Harris. His success in achieving national radio airplay (BBC Radio 2 Bob Harris, Janice Long, Aled Jones) live sessions and interviews whilst remaining an independent artist is a testimony not only to the strength of his tunes but also to his likability and determination as a person. 
Renowned for playing up to as many as three and a half hours, Houston is a gifted and charismatic showman who leaves his audience baying for more. The depth and quality of his work are added bonuses whether opening for big names such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Costello or Van Morrison headlining his own show. Brian Houston is doing what musicians were born to do, making authentic music and giving everything on stage. 
Having spent lockdown writing and recording his new eponymous album, the first single Ivory Tower has already received critical acclaim and extensive airplay on Irish radio and the video for his incredible song Spanish has been released on Youtube and submitted for the NIMUSIC Prize. Expect to hear some of these wonderful songs performed live in the Alley.
