Brian Kennedy: The Essential Collection
25 years later and he is only getting started. Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter and highly regarded radio/television presenter, Doctor of Letters from University of Ulster, a published author not surprisingly for a lyricist of his calibre.

Brian has been very busy in the studio recently and has just finished recording a 32 track double CD Essential Collection comprising brand new recordings from the past and present including a duet with Boy George.

Brian maintains that ‘music is the language of emotion,’ and after all his years gigging and recording with Van Morrison, he prizes the live gig above all else. Seeing and hearing is the only way to experience this national treasure of a man. Internationally celebrated, singer, songwriter, novelist, coach on The Voice of Ireland, former featured vocalist with Van Morrison’s Blues & Soul Revue for six years and on five Van albums, he also was the lead singing performer in Riverdance on Broadway for nine months at the Gershwin Theatre in Manhattan in an especially tailored role at the request of the composer Bill Whelan.

Brian is first and foremost a live performer and songwriter. His own words, “Music is my lifeblood,” are reflected in his relentless schedule. His constant touring from Ireland and UK to Australia, including the major global festivals, has resulted in a thriving international fan base. Brian has shared the stage with an extraordinary list of Legends like Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Buckley, Moya Brennan, Sinead O’Connor, Eddi Reader, Boy George, Sting and even Richard Gere - but that’s another story.

Come, experience and celebrate that voice, musicianship and personality. Hearing is believing!
