Galway born singer-songwriter, Ultan Conlon, will perform in the Dean Crowe Theatre bar on Saturday, October 29, as the Dean Crowe Sessions continue this autumn season.
Ultan Conlon has shared the stage with the likes of Jackson Browne, Shelby Lynne, John Fogerty, Mavis Staples, Bryan Ferry, John Grant, Eddi Reader, Patty Griffin and Richard Hawley. Ultan has also performed duets with Glen Hansard and John Martyn, and Martyn recorded Ultan’s song “Really Gone” in 2005.
Many of Ultan’s lauded songs have received extensive airplay in Ireland and the UK. Marty Whelan and Eve Blair both deemed “There’s a Waltz” as their recommended ‘Album of the Week’.
Conlon’s poetically-enigmatic “songs of substance told with intelligence and wry observation” (Hot Press Magazine ) on ‘There’s a Waltz’ often stem from his own personal experiences. The Sunday Irish Times raved There’s a Waltz is “a record that revels in the beauty of the simple and unspectacular.”
Ultan’s “clear, melodic vocal brings Roy Orbison to mind” (Americana UK ) and his writer’s voice brings forth original songs that combine depths of feeling, introspection and modesty. Blogcritics raved Last Days Of The Night Owl (2018 ) is “an elegantly striking album, full of nuanced floating colours and velvety energy, along with the appealing voice of Ultan Conlon.”
With free admission to the performance, doors open at 7pm with Ultan on stage at 8pm.
