IT has been five months since Dolan’s Warehouse was closed to the public due to the Covid 19 pandemic. On Wednesday September 2, David Keenan will be the first artist to perform in Limerick’s legendary venue before a live audience.
In keeping with public health guidelines, concerts in the Dock Road venue will have a capacity of 40 people with full social distancing measures in place. Tickets are sold per table with four people per table and will go on sale this Monday August 3 at 10am.
The shows will celebrate the release of Keenan’s first live album Alchemy & Prose.
Keenan first came to national attention some years ago when a video was posted online showing him performing in the front seat of a taxi in his native Dundalk. Since then, the storytelling troubadour has completed a US tour and has been praised as the most promising up-and-coming voice in the Irish folk scene.
David Keenan’s live shows are visceral, spiritual and communal events ‘where Keenan moves between a one man and his guitar monologue to fronting a band whose sound only acts as a carrier for the songs further solidifying their intent’.
His much anticipated debut album ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Bravery’ was a critical success and has cemented a growing following for his unique blend of folk and poetic storytelling.
