Damien Dempsey delivers one of the most powerful live shows of any artist in Ireland today. Brian Eno claims ‘For me he’s the very best of Irish music” and The Guardian labels ‘Damo’ as “The greatest Irish singer of his generation”.
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.
