We are thrilled to announce that Duke Special will be touring Ireland in October, where he will unveil songs from his forthcoming new album, which we can now reveal will be called “Hallow”.
The album is based on the poetry of Michael Longley, the influential and renowned Belfast writer. Longley's poems are full of gentleness, honesty, mischief and love and are peppered with a cast of artists, animals, flowers, friends and long forgotten soldiers. Seamus Heaney described his friend Longley as 'a keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders'. As ever, Duke Special is mining a new seam of inspiration, hunting for treasures and what it means to be a human being.
The tour has been commissioned by the Strollers Touring Network and there are 10 solo shows. Some shows are on sale now and the others will all be on sale very soon.
