ULTAN CONLON, the acclaimed Loughrea singer-songwriter, is about to launch his new album, and begin an Irish tour, starting in the Róisín Dubh next week.
Songs of Love So Cruel, Ultan’s second album, is released tomorrow and Ultan and his band play the Róisín on Friday October 4 at 9pm.
The album’s 10 tracks are linked together by common themes and lines of thought, through the story of an older man attempting to reignite his marriage. However the songs are also capable of standing on their own. From the storming rock of ‘A Place of Sanctuary’, to the gentle, country tinged ‘Dance’ to ‘Paper Roses’, and on the stirring duet with long-time friend and musician Sabrina Dinan on ‘The River Flows and the Wood Creep’ (which is also the new single ), these songs change style but are never out of place with one another.
Support is from singer-songwriter Sabrina Dinan. Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG, Shop Street (formerly Zhivago ), and The Róisín Dubh.
