Donegal Songwriter Michael Gillespie will also provide a support slot on the night.
I’m delighted to be invited back to the Balor Arts Centre to open for Jack Lukeman on the 12th Jan 2019. I had the pleasure of supporting Jack a few years ago in the wonderful Backroom at McGrory’s of Culdaff and I’m really looking forward to meeting him again. A lovely gentleman as well as a superb artist.
Tickets can be booked via the Balor’s website here.
A busy Autumn ahead with my first tour of Scotland and England – including the Perthshire Amber Festival, gigs in Edinburgh (incl. Edinburgh Folk Club) and also a visit to the Carlisle Folk & Blues Club in Cumbria to support the fabulous Lucy Ward and her band on Halloween night (I wonder should I dress up as a witch, or would that give a bad first impression? hmm).
Other gigs include hosting The Lark & The Robin monthly series at McGrory’s, Culdaff. November’s guests will be two critically acclaimed singer/songwriters from Northern Ireland – Ciaran Lavery and Matt McGinn. Ciaran recently launched his 2nd EP ‘Kosher’ to great success and Matt is just about to release his next album ‘Latter Day Sinner’.
Ciaran Lavery will also be joining myself and Seamus Devenny at McDaid’s Winebar, Ramelton on the 14th November.

Looking forward to getting out on the road this March for my Irish Spring Tour. Delighted to be joining Roadworks Tours once again, this time supporting longtime friend and wonderful singer/songwriter/musician from the US called Peter Mulvey. Peter is launching his new album Silver Ladder and we will be enjoying a short jaunt around the country – from Wexford to Kildare, Donegal to Belfast, Dublin and beyond. Check out the dates below. After saying farewell to Peter (as he sets off for the UK), I’ll be finishing up my tour at The Acoustic Yard Sessions in Matt Molloy’s, Westport.
Thrilled to be invited to support J.T. Nero & Allison Russell aka Birds of Chicago on their Irish Tour, in association with Roadworks Tours.
