& Special Guests Landless
A very special solo set featuring material from Dawson’s celebrated last album 2020 stripped down to its raw guitar-and-voice essence, plus live favourites taken from his back catalogue of albums.
Tue 23 Aug, 8pm
& Special Guest Mary Lattimore
This is the second Irish visit from rising Japanese singer and guitarist Ichiko Aoba. Her sound draws together chamber music, contemporary orchestral, jazz, folk and impressionistic classical music; it is a sonic voyage through the East China Sea.
Wed 24 Aug, 8pm
& Special Guest Iona Zajac
Native New Yorker Cassandra Jenkins writes with a singular voice and an impressionistic intimacy, making astute observations that dovetail neatly with her blend of folk and lush ambient pop.
