Kieran Halpin is the man with the passionate gravelly voice and a very dry wit. He plays acoustic guitar, regales the audience with explanations of where each song comes from and links it all together with some very funny asides.
His thought-provoking lyrics and memorable melodies covering every conceivable subject from love, loss and celebration, to the more global concerns that face all of us today can make you think, laugh or cry.
A modern protest-song writer, he is never afraid to tackle provocative topics.
If you are a fan of lyrics – then this concert is for you. ‘Nothing To Show For It All’, ‘Berlin Calling’, Closing Time in Paradise’ are some of his songs that come to mind.
To date Kieran Halpin has released 22 CD’s, and 3 songbooks - a remarkable achievement for any artist to be so prolific and still maintain such high standards.
But whilst his albums are always something to look forward to, it is live on stage where he makes his mark. He is at once powerful and passionate, intimate and intense.
His songs can be heard in folk clubs, pubs and festivals all over the world sung by the famous and not so famous and on recordings made by, amongst others, Vin Garbutt, Dolores Keane, The Battlefield Band, Flossie, Niamh Parsons.
Often the songs are better known than the writer himself!
