Damien Dempsey | Live at the Iveagh Gardens

Iveagh Gardens, Saturday 14th July 2018

“One of Ireland’s great singer-songwriters”, The Guardian

Damien played an epic show at Iveagh Gardens last July and this year he will be joined on the evening by very special guests Beoga and Paul Alwright.

Damien Dempsey’s importance as a singer and songwriter of great passion, conviction and beauty has never been more prominent. Dempsey achieves a feeling at his concerts that other artists can only dream of. His connection with his audience is so palpable the most cynical of souls cannot help but be moved by the experience.

Seventeen years into an astonishing career, Damien Dempsey released his seventh studio album in May 2017, his most exciting work to date, Soulsun. Soulsun sees the man affectionately known as Damo team up with a stellar cast of female guest vocalists, who are referred to as ‘the mighty Celtic Warrior High Queens’.

Amidst all the plaudits Damo has won over the years, one of the most notable is contained in Morrissey’s Autobiography. The legendary singer describes Dempsey performing at a session in Dublin’s Four Seasons Hotel. “Damien captivates and enchants with all the love of one blessed and unselfish,” Morrissey writes. “I see myself crying at his funeral, missing him already.”
