Internationally celebrated, Singer, Songwriter, Novelist, Coach on ‘The Voice of Ireland’, former lead performer with Van Morrison’s Blues & Soul Revue for six years, featured Lead Performer in Riverdance on Broadway for nine months in an especially tailored role at the request of the composer Bill Whelan, Brian Kennedy brings 2015 to a close with an intimate show in Whelans, Dublin.
Brian comments: “Whelans is where it all started for me over a quarter of a century ago. I’m thrilled to taking to the stage again, acoustic up close and personal.” BK x
Last year Brian celebrated his tribute to Joni Mitchell CD – ‘A Love Letter To Joni’, now he returns to entertain his audience with a selection of his hits throughout the past twenty-five years. His stream of chart-making albums. ‘A Better Man’ (1996) and ‘Now That I Know What I Want’ (1999), both went platinum at No.1 and earned him the awards of Irish Best Male Artist and Irish Best Male Album, as did the highly acclaimed ‘Homebird’ (2006) and cover album ‘Interpretations’ (2008). But it was Brian’s heart wrenching LIVE performance of ‘You Raise Me Up’ at the Funeral of Football Legend George Best that earned him a spot in the top 5 of the UK charts
Brian has shared the stage with an extraordinary list of Legends like Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Buckley, Moya Brennan, Sinead O’Connor, Eddi Reader, Boy George, Sting and even Richard Gere – but that’s another story. Recently Brian toured with Mark Black on her ‘Last Call’ UK tour and has returned from a successful tour of Australia and sell out shows at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Come, experience and celebrate that voice, musicianship and personality. Hearing is believing
