Damien Dempsey

After multiple sell out shows across Australia in recent years, Damien Dempsey returns with his full band in November to play some headline shows.

Dempsey’s voice is all Dublin, yet wholly distinctive. It is almost clichéd to say it, but he is part of a rich bloodline of Irish singers from Luke Kelly to Ronnie Drew, Christy Moore to Andy Irvine.

To describe Damien Dempsey’s music to someone who has not yet been exposed to it would be to 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.
