David Feherty And Wishbone Ash Just Announced at King Center!
David Feherty is a former professional golfer on the European Tour and PGA Tour. He now works as a writer and broadcaster with NBC Sports and Golf Channel. David was born in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. He turned professional in 1976 and spent most of his playing career in Europe, where he won five times and finished in the top ten twice in the European Tour's Order of Merit, placing tenth in 1989 and eighth in 1990. He spent 1994 and 1995 playing mainly on the PGA Tour in the U.S., and the best result on the tour was a second place finish at the 1994 New England Classic. David represented Ireland in international competition and captained the victorious 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup team and played for Europe on the 1991 Ryder Cup team.
In 1997, David retired from the tours and became an on-course reporter and golf analyst. The first episode of Feherty debuted in 2011 as the most-watched premiere for an original series in Golf Channel history. Over the span of five seasons, David has welcomed a variety of guests on his Golf Channel show, including golf-loving personalities like former President Bill Clinton, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, five-time NBA MVP Bill Russell, comedic genius Larry David and actors Samuel L. Jackson and Don Cheadle. In 2014, David was nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award - "Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Host." Feherty also appears in advertisements for Bridgestone Golf and Hyundai.
David has been dubbed "one of the funniest men in the game" by Yahoo! Sports. Similarly, the Feherty series has received rave reviews, having been described as "a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson" by The New York Times.
In 2014, David decided to take his act on the road and travel across North America for his new live show, Feherty - Live Off Tour. His cutting edge style is full of great stories from behind the scenes, a show you don't want to miss. He will be bringing his sharp wit and colorful personality to the King Center this spring!
WISHBONE ASH - OPEN ROAD TOUR

Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, is coming to the King Center when they hit the 'Open Road' on their Spring US Tour. Longtime fans and new converts alike will revel in the group's signature twin-guitar mastery and powerhouse rhythm section as they present classics spanning their career.
Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash is gearing up for its 50th anniversary on the heels of a limited edition deluxe 30-disc box set, "Wishbone Ash: The Vintage Years," just released and available through Madfish Records while supplies last. Abrahams, who replaced 12-year veteran Muddy Manninen last summer, will be trading licks with Powell; he's already been earning rave reviews from fans on both sides of the Atlantic. Longtime rhythm section, Bob Skeat on bass and Joe Crabtree on drums, continue to provide the solid groove that is their hallmark. Through the years the band has delved into various musical genres; from folk, blues and jazz to pedal-to-the-metal rock and electronica. Whatever the style, Wishbone Ash's hallmark is the distinctive twin-melodic lead guitar interplay that has influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden and, more recently, Opeth.
Wishbone Ash has to its credit 24 original studio recordings, 11 live albums and five live DVDs along with a DVD rockumentary, "This is Wishbone Ash." To be released in April 2018, "The Vintage Years" 30-disc box set, three-and-a-half years in the making, is a special collection dedicated to the band's output from 1970 to 1991, including all 16 studio albums, three live albums, eight previously unreleased live shows from 1973 to 1980, a 156-page coffee-table hardcover book and an assortment of memorabilia. There is no other rock band in history that has done more with the twin guitar concept than The Ash. Be sure to catch them in the intimate setting of the King Center Studio Theatre. Tickets for this show are also available at www.BrevardMusicGroup.com.
