One of the most singular modern English folk songwriters, the absolutely incredible Richard Dawson performs with a full band at Whelan's on November 22.
Richard Dawson has been described by The Guardian as the 'English folk equivalent of Captain Beefheart's deconstruction of the blues'. No small feat for the rootsy, imperfect, heartfelt - without ever breaking into cliché - singer-songwriter, who has gained some impressive, reputable fans in the last few years, including the likes of Stewart Lee. Check out this incredible session performance of 'Wooden Bag'. His new album, Peasant, painstakingly researched, draws parallels between civilisation centuries ago and ourselves and comes with certified acclaim. Check out 'Ogre'.
Support comes from Waterford artist Katie Sullivan, aka Katie Kim, Check out her ethereal, slowcore, ambient drone-folk album Salt on Bandcamp.
Tickets are available from Billetto, priced at €16.50. Doors open at 8pm.
