Lyrically poetic and delicately decadent, Duke Special, the enigmatic Belfast performer, will release his new single “Sweet Sweet Kisses” on October 10. A nationwide tour has also been announced for November and December 2008. And the tour will touch down in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Sunday November 30. Taken from the eagerly anticipated new album I Never Thought This Day Would Come, releasing on Universal Music Ireland on October 17, “Sweet Sweet Kisses” is produced by Paul Wilkinson, who worked on the Duke’s previous Choice nominated album Songs from The Deep Forest. The perfect taster for the new album release, “Sweet Sweet Kisses” features the RTE National Symphony Orchestra and will be available on CD single and download. Glowing with the Duke’s charisma and unique sound, the track is definitively Duke Special.

When you think of Irish rock and indie, the traditional strongholds for major talent to emerge have nearly always been Dublin and Cork. Yet the last few years has seen a plethora of high quality bands emerge from other areas of the country and a growing willingness among the public to support them.
In a career spanning over three decades Cork-native Freddie White has established himself as a legendary Irish guitarist and songwriter. He has also been described as the best interpreter of a song in the country and has been ranked alongside Christy Moore, Van Morrison, and Paul Brady. As a founding member of Scullion in the mid 1970s he brought Irish folk music to international attention and later, with The Freddie White Band, he toured with Eric Clapton. As lead guitarist with Horslips and Moving Hearts and as producer with Sinead Lohan he further enhanced his reputation. After many years living in the USA he returned to Ireland in early 2000 and since then has become an almost constant presence on the Irish touring scene. Galway audiences will be very familiar with his much-loved shows at Roisin Dubh down through the years and he makes a welcome return to the venue on Sunday August 24.
