Chris Keys 12th September 8pm
Making a debut appearance at the Abbey Arts Centre Chris Keys will play songs from his first album ‘Life In Motion’ and a selection of new material which will be on the forthcoming 2nd album.
Chris has a distinctive voice, an easy listening sound and haunting melodies that stay in your head long after you’ve heard them.
Born and raised on the coast of Northern Ireland this singer-songwriter gained a wealth of inspiration and has been writing and performing from an early age.
Chris writes songs mostly with hints of Folk, Blues, and Americana as well as the occasional Pop and Rock record.
Over the years Chris has performed at a wide array of events and festivals and has shared the stage and opened up for the likes of Nanci Griffith, Bob Geldof & the Boomtown Rats, Fairport Convention, Jim Lauderdale and many more.
