One Inch Badge present:
Ireland's preeminent singer songwriter Damien Dempsey has announced a special one-off show with his band for St Patricks Day - Friday 17 March - at Koko in London. With a string of number 1 albums Damien is held in the highest regard in his homeland by peers and audiences. With three sold out Christmas concerts at Vicar Street in Dublin this year and widespread sell-out shows all over Ireland, Damien Dempsey’s importance as a singer and songwriter of great passion, conviction and beauty has never been more prominent and he will be releasing a brand new studio album in 2017. Quite apart from his immense skill as a lyricist, as a vocalist Dempsey is totally captivating. So how do you describe Damien Dempsey’s music to someone who hasn’t yet been exposed to it? Take some reggae, fuse it with traditional Irish music, add in rock and folk and put it all through a grounded working class worldly aware yet caring consciousness, and you’re some bit of the way there.
“One of Ireland’s great singer-songwriters” The Guardian
