David Keenan is an Irish songwriter, steeped in the poetic tradition of old but delivered in such a way that is entirely his own.
Through narrative driven lyrics, Keenan creates an inner world while leaving the door slightly ajar for us to enter and act out scenes. His live shows have been described as visceral, spiritual and communal events where Keenan moves between a one man and his guitar monologue to fronting a tight, infectious band.
Dressed in the clothes of an out of work revolutionary, Keenan is not just another young lad with an acoustic guitar. To put it in literary terms, he's the sound of Tim Buckley and Brendan Behan arguing over a few jars, while Kavanagh deals Dylan a suspicious hand of cards, and Anthony Cronin and Jack Kerouac furiously try to scribble it all down.
David joins us in the church of St. James in Dingle this December.
