Event Details

Damien Dempsey’s new collaborations album, Union, was released in November 2018 and in the UK in early 2019. It features recordings with
friends including John Grant, Kate Tempest, Imelda May, Finbarr Furey and Sinead O Connor.

Dempsey’s debut album in 2000, They Don’t Teach This Shit in School, set him apart as a unique and important voice, championed from an early stage in his career by Sinéad O’Connor. The follow-up, Seize the Day, marked the beginning of his relationship with producer John Reynolds, picking up many awards and leading to extensive international tours. Commercial and critical success continued with the release of the No. 1 album, Shots (2005), backed by Brian Eno, and To Hell or Barbados (2007), which debuted at No.2 in the Irish charts. He released studio album, Soulsun, in May 2017.

With five Top 10 albums under his belt Damien has an impressive back catalogue and undeniable staying power. Renowned also for his searing live shows, 2018 was one of Damien’s most successful to date before the pandemic brought everything to a halt.
