Maggie Boyle and Paul Downes create acoustic excellence at The Met

The Met welcomes London-Irish singer Maggie Boyle alongside guitarist par-excellence Paul Downes on Thursday 30 May 8pm.


Maggie Boyle has an impressive catalogue of live and recorded work, including the title track for 1992 film Patriot Games and collaborations with The Chieftains, Bert Jansch, Steve Tilston, Rambert Dance Company and John Renbourne. Her new album, Won’t You Come Away, has garnered brilliant reviews, including four-star responses from Uncut and Rock’n’Reel.


“Listening to a new album from Maggie Boyle is rather like dipping into a box of chocolates blindfolded to find another delight” - Rock ‘n’ Reel ****


Paul Downes cut his teeth performing with The Arizona Smoke Review and Downes & Beer. His sensitive yet fun approach to live performances puts him amongst the most respected artists on the British acoustic music scene today, with credits including eight albums with various bands, three highly acclaimed solo albums and over 150 session credits.


Tickets for the performance are £12. For further information or to book go online at www.themet.biz or phone ticket office on 0161 761 2216.
