One of Ireland’s finest voices, Brian Kennedy, is returning to Australia in May/June for a national Australian Tour, and to perform at the National Celtic Festival in Portarlington.

 

Brian Kennedy survived a childhood on the infamous Falls Road, West Belfast at the height of its hellish history against all the odds to carve an extraordinary career in Music. 

 

His work with Van Morrison has been well documented. The Belfast Legend invited Brian to a rehearsal one day that resulted in him being featured as guest lead singer on the now unforgettable ‘Blues & Soul Revue’.  Courtesy of Van’s continuing mentoring and generosity, Brian ended up sharing Vocal duties on stages across the globe over a six-year period with Morrison and a breathtaking cast of some of the greatest artists in history: Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker to name but a few. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, you might be less familiar with Brian’s impromptu performances with Stevie Wonder at Ronnie Scotts in London. Incredibly and proudly he is one of only a few to have also sung with the late legendary Jeff Buckley at Sin É in New York.

 

Throughout the relentless touring with Van Morrison, Brian somehow managed to maintain a stream of chart-making albums. ‘A Better Man’ (1996) and ‘Now That I Know What I Want’ (1999), both went platinum at No.1 and earned him the awards of Irish Best Male Artist and Irish Best Male Album, as did the highly acclaimed ‘Homebird’ (2006) and cover album ‘Interpretations’ (2008).

 

Brian’s 2012 album ‘VOICE’ entered the album charts at No. 3, cementing his reputation as an exceptional vocalist, guitar player, songwriter and interpreter, and featured the single ‘Best Days’, Brian’s lyrical reaction to the recession.

 

2014 saw the release of Brian’s eagerly anticipated studio tribute album to Joni Mitchell called ‘A Love Letter To Joni’, which he is now touring internationally with ‘A case of you’, ‘Little Green’ & ‘River’ all being on his setlist.
