Duke Special – Hallow

with support act Emily Maguire


Belltable | 25th October | 8pm | €20/€18


Seamus Heaney described his friend, the poet Michael Longley, as: ‘a keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders’. 

On this very special tour, 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.

Emily Maguire

“Exquisite” UNCUT,  “A class act” The Mirror, “A true artist” R2 Magazine, “Music for the soul”  Maverick

A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist with five albums and two books to her name, Emily Maguire is truly “a talent to be reckoned with” (R2 Magazine), her strong, thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and stunning live performances winning her fans across the globe.  After living in a shack in the Australian bush where she made her first two albums, Emily returned to the UK to tour with American legend Don McLean and make her third album ‘Believer’, a ‘masterpiece’ according to Maverick Magazine, with two singles playlisted on Radio 2. Her latest album ‘A Bit Of Blue’ was released in February 2017.

Emily is supporting Duke Special on 5 of his shows in Ireland in October, where she will perform as a duo with a bass player and Emily on piano and guitar.
