Our next Art Society Event will be on Belfast’s Culture Night- Friday 21st September.
Society Members will meet at The Royal Ulster Academy(details below) to enjoy the collection and the music, then continue on to the Club for supper. For details and booking please contact Christina.
The Royal Ulster Academy will be offering audiences a look at it’s unique Diploma Collection. 2018 will be a special year as we will have been in new home at St Anne’s Square, 59 North Street for just over a year. St Anne’s Court is situated in the very heart of the cultural celebrations, the Diploma Collection will be open to the public between 5pm and 8.30pm and we will also be hosting a live music set from Tony Kaluarachchi.
Tony Kaluarachchi offers an authentic new sound that combines unique vocals and a mezmerising guitar technique in a set list that includes jazz, soul and Latin American classics. He has played all over Ireland and beyond as part of several notable bands and is currently offering a solo act which is no less spectacular than the live band experience.
Recent residencies include Horatio Todds, Holohan’s at the Barge, Aether & Echo, Tedford’s Restaurant, Fortwilliam Golf Club, Deanes Restaurant, the Apartment, The Hudson Bar and the Marco Pierre White Restaurant in the Park Avenue Hotel . He collaborates with Linley Hamilton from time to time and recently played at the launch of the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts Annual Exhibition at the Ulster Museum. Here’s a sample of his live playing:
