FOLLOWING A successful run at the Hollywood Fringe festival where he picked up two awards for his show, The King of Soho and Other Stories, Jack Lukeman is back in Ireland for a nationwide tour that takes in Galway.
Jack L plays the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday February 11 at 8pm, where he will be performing songs from his new album Magic Days, which includes the single, 'The King Of Soho', a guitar and horn fuelled stomper, about the thoughts of a man who is tunnelling his way out of gaol, and what he imagines life on the outside will be like.
Lukeman, who is a native of Athy, has won numerous awards, including the Edinburgh Spotlight Best Music Award at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Last year he performed at RTÉ's Centenary Concert to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising. He has also performed alongside U2, Ronnie Wood, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Elvis Costello, Jools Holland, and Marianne Faithfull, and played the Olympia in Paris, the Royal Albert Hall in London, and The Lincoln Center in NYC.
