SongLives

Curated by Grammy Award-winner Susan McKeown

SongLives showcases Ireland and North America’s most exciting contemporary singer-songwriters, bringing the rich tradition of busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street to the cozy confines of our intimate Donaghy Theatre.

Friday, May 19 | 8 PM

Adrian Crowley and Jason Darling
Featuring Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman)

“The Galway native has steered a trusty course throughout his career, each album a musical progression yet anchored by that commanding, sonorous voice and reflective, evocative lyric-poems that bind love, life and nature together.” – The Irish Times

Adrian Crowley

Adrian Crowley has made a steadfast career as a singer, songwriter and recording artist. He grew up in Galway and has been based in Dublin for a number of years. He is considered to be one of Ireland’s most celebrated contemporary lyricists. He was awarded the prestigious Choice Music Prize for album of the year in 2010 for “Season Of The Sparks” and has been nominated for the award on two other occasions.

Adrian’s fourth album “Long Distance Swimmer” was named as The Irish Independent album of the year.

The New Yorker quotes Crowley as “having transcended the limitations of his chosen genre thanks to a deeply captivating voice and a light touch.”

Jason Darling

Jason Darling has been a prominent figure on the New York folk scene for many years, having cut his teeth and established his reputation in the hallowed ground of Greenwich Village. Darling contributed guitar to Leona Naess’s celebrated 2000 album “Comatised,” and participated in the resulting world tour. In between dates he signed with L.A. label Surprise Truck, and wrote and recorded his debut album, "Underground". This was a literate, yet rootsy, affair that showcased Darling's expressive slide guitar work, and set the tone for his subsequent work.
