Leading Irish singer-songwriters for Monroe’s Live
By Kernan Andrews
BRIAN KENNEDY and Paddy Casey, two of Ireland’s most popular singer-songwriters, will both play Monroe’s Live in November.
Belfast’s Brian Kennedy will play on Thursday November 15 at 9pm. Brian is first and foremost a live performer and songwriter. His own words, “Music is my lifeblood,” are reflected in his relentless schedule, from his first gig in the 1990s, to recent concerts with Tom Jones and performances for Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.
Paddy Casey’s career began with busking sessions on the streets of Galway before he released his acclaimed debut album, Amen (So Be It) in 1999. Despite a long hiatus, his second album Living (2004) went 11 times Platinum and remained in the top 10 for more than a year. Addicted To Company followed in 2007.
Catch Paddy with his full band in Monroe’s Live on November 17 at 8.30pm. On the night he wil play songs from his forhtcoming album The Secret Life Of, which will be released on Friday November 9.
Tickets are available on the door or through www.monroes.ie and 091 - 583397.
