A Night for Daniel Johnston @ The Duncairn, Belfast


Four months on from his passing at 58, several Irish musicians will come together on Wednesday, January 22 (aka Hi, How Are You day) to pay tribute to the late, great Daniel Johnston.

A towering figure of lo-fi, the songwriter and visual artist, Johnston’s music and legacy will be celebrated at the event from 7.30pm at the Duncairn in Belfast. Performing on the night – which will raise funds for PIPS Suicide and Self Harm prevention – are Aaron Shanley, Junk Drawer, Buí, Chris Ryan of Robocobra Quartet and Jealous of the Birds.

Tickets are £10 on the door (or £8.50 online) and it’s BYO.
