Performing for MUSIC at HeART on Thursday 18 July will be IAN GRIFFIN, from Neath in South Wales, making his seventh appearance for the Club. The concert is being staged at the White Hart Hotel in Andover on Thursday 18 July, commencing at 7.30 p.m. (with the concert room opening at 7.00 p.m.).

Ian is an award-winning keyboard player, having first appeared on BBC 1 television at the age of twelve in a programme titled Britain’s Young Entertainers. At the age of fifteen he appeared in an electronic keyboard festival where he was voted the best player under the age of 18 by the readers of a national music magazine.

In 1990, he formed his own cabaret show band, ‘Casual Affair’, which made several appearances on HTV’s ‘Friday Live’ programme. In 1996 he was the musical director on HTV’s ‘Friday Night Live’, an early form of ITV’s X-Factor show, with famous personalities as judges on talent from Wales. His gift of perfect pitch has been useful in accompanying many singers, for which he received accolades from fellow keyboard players.

In 1997, he became Musical Director and Associate Producer for Pontin’s Keyboard Special Events in Torquay and has since co-produced a number of keyboard festivals. In 1998, he made recordings for various artistes appearing on ITV’s ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ and has performed at several keyboard festivals in Holland.

Ian first performed for the Club at Weyhill in October 2006 and then at The Lights theatre in October 2008 – the latter in company with two music associates. He is always in demand for festivals and concerts, the latter usually including request spots which have proved very popular amongst his audiences.

Tickets priced at £8.00 (including interval refreshments) can be obtained in advance from the Hotel and, subject to availability, at the door on the night.
