SongLives

SJ McArdle and Brandon Wilde
Thursday, April 17 | 8 pm

SongLives brings the rich tradition of busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street to the wonderful intimacy and acoustics of the Donaghy Theatre.

Curated by Grammy Award-winner Susan McKeown.

“Every so often you hear a musician's voice that's so pure it causes your arm hair to stand up and your mind's attention to sit still. Singer-songwriter Brandon Wilde has that undeniable, yet indescribable ‘it’ that transforms a crowd into an audience. His live performance is a like a warm embrace — comforting, confident, connected and guaranteed to leave you feeling good about life.” - David Adams, Founder of www.TheAcousticGuitarProject.com
