We are very pleased to announce that Duke Special will be on tour in the UK in November and December! On this tour, expect to hear new music from Duke's next studio album, due to see the light of day later this year.
Seamus Heaney described his friend, the poet Michael Longley, as: ‘a keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders’. Duke Special will be performing songs and music based on the poetry of this 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. As ever, Duke Special is mining a new seam of inspiration, hunting for treasures and what it means to be a human being.
These will be solo shows and all venues are seated apart from the last date in Saltaire which is a mix of seated and standing.
