Albert Niland returns to Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, on Monday, November 30th. Doors open 8:30pm; gig 9pm. Admission is €12.
Albert Niland is, without doubt, one of the most impressive singer/songwriters to have come out of Ireland in more than the past decade.
Originally from Mountbellew, Co. Galway, he came to national attention in the early noughties for his interpretation of Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights'. That cover is, indeed, extraordinary, but there is so much more to Mr. Niland's catalogue, and musical breadth.
Time spent as a student of Flamenco guitar in Spain, years spent living and touring in Europe, and influences from as broad a range as Irish Traditional, to American folk, have all worked to form Albert Niland into one of the most exciting, and innovative songwriters around.
Most highly recommended.
