Concert celebrates music of George Harrison Saturday at Sondheim

England’s Nick Bold hits the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Fairfield Arts & Convention Center’s Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts in his acclaimed tour-de-force “George! The Concert” with the music of “the Quiet Beatle” George Harrison.

It’s all there, George’s biggest Beatles hits and all of his wonderful post-breakup solo material, including music from his 1980s supergroup, The Traveling Wilburys. The set list includes “Here Comes The Sun,” “What is Life,” “Blow Away,” “Taxman,” “All Things Must Pass,” and many more.

“Harrison cut an indelible impression with musical virtuosity, lyrical guitar playing, and his beautiful introspective songs.” And Nick Bold’s performance, storytelling and authentic persona are “as ‘George’ as it gets” notes one reviewer.

Bold made his first mark on the music business in the 1980s as a founding member, lead guitarist and principal songwriter for the British rock band, Virginia Wolf, and was signed to Atlantic Records. He went on to produce and write for other artists, with countless hits to his credit, including the ballad “Man In The Moon,” which has been covered by numerous artists of all genres.

Taking a cue from his childhood, when he was constantly being told he looked like George Harrison, Bold appeared on the British TV hit “Stars in Their Eyes” as George Harrison. His impeccable impression immediately earned him critical acclaim and led to his performing all over the world in multiple Beatles tributes before becoming a founding member of the U.S. based touring production, The Reunion Beatles.

Bold notes that “George! The Concert” has allowed him to bring his passion for the man and the music to a whole new level.
