Damien Dempsey- back at The Source Arts Centre for one night only

Not many people know this but Damien Dempsey is a former amateur boxer. He is a survivor of street gang culture and has emerged with his powerful self belief intact. Damien’s concerts have been described as almost spiritual occasions with fans singing along to every word and to look to the big man as a leader for expressing such intense and social concerns. ‘Damo’ as he is affectionately known tells it like it is. He was singing about despair and empowerment when the boom was booming and Irish music seemed preoccupied with individual concerns. At Oxegen 2006, he said that Patrick Pearse would be “turning in his grave” at the state of modern Ireland.

Since then a truly talented singer songwriter has found his path and  Damien has toured the world, playing his own headline shows and supporting legends such as Bob Dylan, Morrissey, Sinead O’Connor, The Pogues and Willie Nelson, and even U2. Damien’s new album ‘Almighty Love’ will be released on 28th September and promises to soar through the charts. It has been way too long a wait since Damien Dempsey first took to the stage at The Source Arts Centre, but a very welcome return. This December gig will sell out we can guarantee you that; we also can guarantee a gig for the audience to remember! Early booking advised.
