FREDDIE White is an Irish music legend.

His name has always been synonymous with music of the highest quality whether he's interpreting songs by his favourite writers, such as Ran, Tom Waits, John Hiatt and Guy Clark, or performing his own classy compositions.

Freddie has been part of the fabric of the live music scene in Ireland since the 1970's and he makes a welcome return to Waterford on Saturday, July 14 in Garter Lane Arts Centre.

This tour is called 'One Heart Beating', named after Freddie's 14 th album.

In the past he's been involved in bands such as 'Scullion', with Philip King and Sonny Condell and 'The Fake', who were regarded as one of the seminal Irish bands of the late '70's.

Next of course came The Freddie White Band which toured with Eric Clapton that year and had a string of subsequent hits.

In May 2002 the 2-CD set Lost and Found was released, comprising digitally re-mastered versions of two of Freddie's bestselling early albums, albums, namely, Live on Tour and Do You Do, under the watchful eye of original producer PJ Curtis.

The re-release was warmly welcomed not only by the many whose original vinyl copies had long since worn out, but also by those who delighted in discovering these classic recordings.

In 2004 he released an all-new studio album entitled Four Days in May which was recorded in Dublin with some of Ireland's finest musicians over a four-day period.

It showcases Freddie's songwriting prowess and unerring choice of songs worthy of remarkable reinterpretation.

This is a rare opportunity to see Freddie White live in the fantastic live venue that is Garter Lane Arts Centre.

The show starts at 8pm on Saturday, July 14 and tickets (€20 & €18) are available from http://www.garterlane.ie or the box office at 051-855038

    As dry as the SaharaIt seems that whenever the weather in Ireland goes a little bit extreme, we are somehow incapable of dealing with it. It has already happened so far this year with the snow that totally disrupted the country for about a week and also later on when some areas in the country were flooded due to excess rain. Now it is happening again because we are having to deal with a level of sunshine that is virtually unheard of in the country. And a level of sunshine that is going on for a good numbe …
