JOE CHESTER

A second show in the intimate surroundings of Bewley's Café Theatre following on from a beautiful evening in January.

Joe Chester's albums have been written about in the books 101 Irish Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, by Tony Clayton-Lea and Buried Treasure Vol. 2 by Dan Hegarty and recently in The Sunday Times list of the best Irish albums of all time - "Chester's debut solo album is a perfect pop record. The songs are at once effortless, memorable, hook-laden and a masterclass in subtle dynamics."

His fifth album, The Easter Vigil, meanwhile, was named 2017 Irish Album of the Year by The Sun who described it as, "A tonic for these times, a triumph of substance over style." He has been nominated for the Choice Music Prize and the Meteor Irish Music Awards. A producer of over 50 albums, he was until recently one half of the critically acclaimed Hedge Schools, has been a member of The Waterboys and toured extensively with Gemma Hayes.
He is a member of Dublin group a lazarus soul and has been described by Hotpress Magazine as "A legitimate giant of Irish music."

His current release, She Darks Me, given its first physical release in January 2017 consists of songs written on the road and recorded with such luminaries of music as Steve Wickham (The Waterboys, U2) and Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles.) "A lost album worth finding" - Irish Times
