Fri 12th April Vicar Street.
Tickets €42 available from Ticketmaster.
MusicTown are proud to present a unique evening with Damien Dempsey, as he performs tracks with special guests (tba) from his standout new album Union as well as classic tracks from his much loved catalogue.
“A wonderful collection a true original…” (Hot Press)
“Union is a series of jaw dropping highlights…” (The Herald)
Union, the album, is a collection of 14 songs, features 7 new tracks plus new and re-imagined classic tracks from Damien’s recording career featuring sonic collaborations with 3 generations of Damien’s favourite vocalists including Finbar Furey, Imelda May, John Grant, Moya Brennan, Maverick Sabre, Pauline Scanlon and Sinead O’Connor amongst others.
“Damien Dempsey is a precious jewel in the crown of Ireland” (Imelda May)
“He remains a heartbeat with passion and soul right at the top of his art” (Finbar Furey)
Speaking of the album Damien said: “I love collaborating with people who move me with their music and lyrics and soul and voice. When we collaborate with music we always learn something from each other and take a little bit of each other’s spirit and magic away with us. You can always come up with something that you wouldn’t have if alone, souls and minds mingle, kindred spirits connect and dance, creativity crackles, and the results can be wonderful. Union is a myriad of styles and a bit of a melting pot but I adore melting pots and I reckon there’s something for everyone here.”
Guests for this unique evening at Vicar Street are yet to be announced. Keep updated at MusicTown.ie Tickets €42 available from Ticketmaster.
