Damien Dempsey Ireland’s preeminent singer songwriter is bringing a very special set to some very special venues in England and Scotland in 2016.
He has recorded a unique album, No Force On Earth as a celebration and commemoration of the Easter uprising of 1916 that saw the birth of the Irish Republic. In his homeland Damien is held in the highest regard by peers and audiences and as well as a string of number 1 albums he has a haul of Meteor Awards.
Damien is already known for his searing live shows with his band after several tours across the UK, however the close up intensity of his acoustic performance has, until now, only been a pleasure that Irish audiences have witnessed.
This is a one off opportunity to see Damien in an intimate setting sharing his story of this centenary year, a golden opportunity to hear the man regarded by many as the next wave of Irish musical heritage.
Many of the tracks he wrote himself for the album and some are classic covers of the period, all arranged by Damien and producer John Reynolds.
Opening track Aunt Jenny is a Damien original, ” About my great aunt Jenny (or Jinny as she was known)” says Damien. Aunt Jinny, a woman at the heart of the uprising and who’s story must be heard.
Damien will launch a new studio album in 2017 and return to touring with his band, in the meantime this is your chance to hear a very personal performance of this album along with some of Damien’s finest tunes.
