David Celia Presents Pink Floyd’s The Wall: Solo Acoustic
Advance $25 / Door $30 *
David Celia is long-established as one of Toronto’s most accomplished guitar players and respected singer/songwriters. He grew up on classic rock and honed his guitar skills as a youngster playing along to Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd records. He has incorporated many covers into his repertoire over the years, culminating in a recent concert where he performed The Wall in its entirety for the first time. The response from the audience was ecstatic.
“By chance I had a gig offered to me at a time when The Wall was running through my head. I realized I knew the album so well by heart that instead of getting a band I decided to play it solo. The show involves some live looping and the famous Gilmour guitar delay (plus a smidge of piano). I enjoy improvising parts of it but I always stay true to the record. The audience may not be able to help themselves but sing along at times, and that is totally welcome.”
David’s playful guitar playing and soulful vocals will win over both casual fans and even the most devoted Floyd-heads.
David has performed his original work three times at the Glastonbury Festival, Mariposa and many other festivals in Germany, Holland and France. He spends half his year touring Europe and is currently promoting the album Daydreamers, written and recorded with German singer/songwriter Marla.
On a cold Thursday night in November, come warm up with an acoustic performance by David Celia as he brings The Wall – in its entirety – to Hugh’s Room Live.
