A welcome return following our sold-out concerts there in 2009 & 2011. This is a lovely little theatre. It is very quaint - like a cross between Leeds Varieties Theatre and a dolls house! In March 2016 we return to nearby Masham Town Hall.

Classic Clapton unpluggedCLASSIC CLAPTON Unplugged

IRVINE, Scotland
The Harbour Arts Centre

The first unplugged gig by Mike Hall and Adam Howells was a terrific success, with a great response from the SOLD OUT Irvine audience. More Classic Clapton unplugged shows are planned for 2017. eg Kinross on 10 March.

Music lover Tom Mccrorie posted this comment on Facebook:- Brilliant acoustic concert last night at The Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine.  Mike Hall not only looks like Eric Clapton but can play guitar like him. His sidekick on the gig was Adam Howells who was superb. All the old favourites from across Eric's albums. "After Midnight" is the acoustic duo from the full "Classic Clapton" tribute group and for my money, they sound more like Clapton.  Mike's voice is amazingly similar to Clapton's and seems to be getting better with age. Adam's backing vocals were perfect and he also fronted a couple of numbers himself.  Great show and I will definitely book up for the next one.
