Into The Mystic - The Music of Van Morrison
Joe Creighton is without doubt one of Australia’s most formidable and respected bass players, a singer songwriter in his own right with 4 critically acclaimed solo albums and has worked for artists such as John Farnham for 13 years, Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue, Tim Finn, The Black Sorrows, Ray Charles, Boz Scaggs to name a few.
There is not an artist in this country that hasn’t used Joe’s skills on their albums in the capacity of bass player and vocalist but with his current show Into the Mystic Joe takes to centre stage where he belongs to effortlessly recreate the feeling of those heady times of Van Morrison.
“Joe Creighton gives one of the best readings of a Van Morrison song that I have heard.” Brian Wise, Music Journalist. Rhythms Magazine and 3RRR
Joe and his 8-piece band takes the audience on a journey that begins in the 60's and moves through the decades encompassing Van's worldwide hits with a sprinkling of some of the more mystical poetic songs from the 'Astral Weeks' album.
