Phil re­mem­bered at King’s Call gig

Bray People - - PICTURES -

THE boys were back in town last Fri­day night at the Hot Spot in Grey­stones, with a trib­ute to the late Philip Par­ris Lynott.

On the 33rd an­niver­sary of the beloved Dubliner’s death, trib­ute band Thin­ner Lizzy head­lined ‘King’s Call for the Home­less’ at the Grey­stones venue, rais­ing money for WH Five Loaves/Arc Hous­ing and Liv­ing Life Coun­selling.

Other mu­si­cians to per­form their in­car­na­tions of Lynott’s mu­sic on the night in­cluded Aran McMa­hon, Karl McKenna, Brian Meakin, Conor O’Don­nell and Clara Rose.

The in­ti­mate cel­e­bra­tion of Phil Lynott’s life in­cluded the full blown rock vibe on the main stage.

The evening also in­cluded the art, mu­sic and po­etry of the Thin Lizzy front man, in­cor­po­rat­ing his wide reper­toire of mu­si­cal styles from punk and me­tal to trad.

The fundrais­ing as­pect of the night was in keep­ing with Phil’s leg­endary gen­eros­ity of spirit, and in par­al­lel with the bleak times in which he rose to fame.
