The New York Times called him “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.” His album “Streets Of New York” was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT magazine. He has been called “a one-man Clash” (UNCUT) and his critically acclaimed albums have gotten rave reviews around the world. Bono, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, Adam Duritz and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises. Willie Nile is a songwriters’ songwriter and his live performances are legendary. He has toured across the U.S. opening for The Who at the personal request of the band and sang with Bruce Springsteen at Giant Stadium. Bruce recently joined Willie on stage in Asbury Park for Willie’s song “Heaven Help The Lonely”.

Venue : Pontio, Bangor
Stand-up sensation supported by Bangor’s student comedy talent
Charming and charismatic, a natural motor-mouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge on the comedy circuit in ages. Walsh’s assured delivery and self-deprecating silliness features in ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ and ‘Mock The Week’ making him one of DAVE’s top 10 stand-ups.
Supporting Seann will be the winner of Bangor Comedy’s competition to find the funniest stand up comedian at Bangor University. Bangor’s top comic will share the stage with Seann along with improvisation performers.
For this event, Pontio will be trialling the new “No Show? No Worries” scheme. If you cannot attend the show for whatever reason, you can return your ticket to the Pontio shop the next day, with your NUS card, and claim a full refund. Offer valid until shop closing time 3pm, Tuesday 7 May 2013.
Cash-only bar open from 7pm.
