Damien Dempsey - NO FORCE ON EARTH TOUR 2016

Ireland's preeminent singer songwriter Damien Dempsey is bringing a very special solo set to some very special venues in Ireland this November and December.

Backstage Theatre, Longford

20th November 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. An opportunity to hear the man regarded by many as the next wave of Irish musical heritage. Amongst the tracks he wrote himself for the album, some are classic covers of the period, is Black Bank Folk… "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….
