John Illsley

As a founder member and Bass guitarist of Dire Straits John has had a remarkable musical journey since 1977, selling over 120 million albums and picking up a few Grammy’s on the way as well as an Ivor Novello award in 1988 for “ Outstanding contribution to British Music.”
The show will feature all the well known songs from Dire Straits such as Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing and Brothers in Arms plus songs from John’s last album “Testing the Water” and the latest “Long Shadows” which is released in April this year.
“ the new songs fit very comfortably next to the DS classics which I still love to play and it seems people love to hear.”
