STEVE WICKHAM is a revered Irish musician, best known as a member of the Waterboys, having made major contributions to many of their most famous tracks including “Fishermans Blues” “A Man Is In Love” and “The Pan Within”.
However he has also worked with U2 (playing on “Sunday Bloody Sunday” from the “War” album) and Sinead O’Connor on her early and most successful albums. Steve was born in Dublin, raised on classical music and Celtic folk, but his career has seen him emerge as a groundbreaking musician, whose use of the violin to create distinct rock soundscapes has earned him the nickname `’the Jimi Hendrix of the violin”. We await his first appearance in Nantwich with bated breath.
RAY COEN is a guitarist / multi instrumentalist hailing from Sligo.
