The star of Wreck-It Ralph is also a roots musician
Hollywood star John C Reilly will be visiting the Glasgow's St Andrews in The Square on Tue 12 Feb to play an intimate gig, alongside fellow musicians Becky Stark and Tom Brosseau. Reilly, who is signed to Jack White's Third Man Records label, plays acoustic roots music as well as appearing in films like Step Brothers, Carnage (pictured) and Wreck-It Ralph.
Here's what he had to say:
'Welcome to the John Reilly and friends roots review. Roots music. It’s just another way of saying good old music that has survived the passing of time: folk, traditional, bluegrass, close-harmony, country. Whatever labels people have tried to stick to good music through the ages are irrelevant. It’s that song that touches something deeper, that makes ancient sense to your soul. The tree of music has deep roots which go back to these songs, conceived and sung around lonesome campfires, rain-soaked ship's decks, whispering mountain pines or dusty barren farmland they stand the test of time and keep our souls alive. Join your host John C Reilly and some incredible singers and musicians as they summon the spirits of the tree of song, from deep down in the roots. You just might feel better somehow.’
St Andrews in the Square, Glasgow, Tue 12 Feb. Buy tickets from Synergy.
