Seventeen years into an astounding career, one of Ireland’s most revered singers, Damien Dempsey is set to bring a new spin to Irish classics by performing The Great Irish Songbook in March 2018.

This new tour will see Dempsey perform well loved songs from The Pogues and The Dubliners next March. 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Great Irish Songbook are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
