Just Announced – The Great Irish Songbook: An Evening with Damien Dempsey

We are thrilled to announce that Damien Dempsey will be at Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Monday 12th March to play The Great Irish Songbook, performing the songs of The Pogues and The Dubliners.

One of Ireland’s most revered singers, Dempsey rose to fame in 1997 when his first single Dublin Town caught the attention of Sinead O’Connor, who he later collaborated and toured with. Dempsey’s original folk has garnered him many Meteor awards such as Best Folk/Traditional Act and Best Irish Country/Roots Artist. The singer songwriter released his seventh studio album Soulsun in May, which features guest vocals from Dido and fellow Dubliner Imelda May.

This new tour will see Dempsey perform well loved songs from The Pogues and The Dubliners. Dempsey is no stranger to covers, having released covers only album The Rocky Road in 2008, which includes a version of The Pogues A Rainy Night in Soho alongside other well-known ballads.
