GIAF 16 Round-up reviews

Wed, Jul 27, 2016

A scene from Our Ladies of Perpetual Succor, a highlight of GIAF16.

RISING STAR and Irish soul singer Brian Deady brought down the curtain on this year’s Galway International Arts Festival in fine style with a rousing gig at the Róisín Dubh on Sunday night.

His Skibereen-meets-Stax brand of soul had the audience whooping in appreciation as he worked through the highlights from his two albums, Interview and Non-Fiction. ‘Over Like McGyver’, ‘A Darkness’, ‘Betty’, and ‘Call My Name’, and showed the authenticity of Deady’s soul chops.

His is music that can hit your dancing feet, your gut and your heart, often at the same time, and alongside the uplift of a song like hit single ‘Clap Both My Hands’ he can deliver the naked vulnerability and heartbreak of a song like ‘Dad’, one of the standouts of the evening. Heck, we even got some ‘werewolf soul’ as Deady donned a lupine Halloween mask for one track and still managed to sound great in it!
