In November 2016, the Hawk’s Well Theatre presented 'A Night with Steve Wickham' - a celebration of violin virtuoso Steve Wickham’s musical journey.
Steve Wickham’s musical career spans over three decades right back to his early 80’s debut as fiddler with U2 playing on ’Sunday Bloody Sunday‘ and touring with the Irish Rockers. Steve was a founder member of 80s Irish band InTuaNua, signed to the legendary Island records. As a session violinist, Wickham has recorded with Elvis Costello and Sinead O’Connor and many others as well as guesting live with REM, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith etc. Steve Wickham is best known as the fiddler with The Waterboys and among Sligo residents as one of the group, NoCrows.
On this night of celebration and reflection, Steve spoke of his musical journey to date, performing a back catalogue of music along with new work from his forthcoming solo album. He was joined by friends from NoCrows, The Connaught Ramblers, The Lost Brothers, Henry Wickham and Brian McDonagh along with a house band made up of musicians Steve Kohlmann, Daragh Heuston, Glen Garrett and Ray Coen.
