Dublin singer Damien Dempsey plays songs from his new album, Union, ahead of St. Patrick's Day on 17 March.
The best folk, acoustic and roots music from Britain and beyond.
This week, top Irish singer Damien Dempsey performs live, ahead of St. Patrick’s Day on 17 March.
One of Dublin’s favourite sons, ‘Damo’ grew up in a musical house and chose music over his other early passion, competitive boxing. Since 2000 he’s made nine albums of gritty, soulful, no-nonsense music with much to say about modern Irish life and society.
His new album, Union, features duets and collaborations with singers including Wildwood Kin, John Grant, Lisa O’Neill, Finbar Furey, Seamus Begley, Pauline Scanlon and Kate Tempest. He’ll play songs from the album, and other favourites, on this week’s Folk Show.
Plus the usual mix of exciting new releases, classic tracks and news from the folk world.
