Robin James Hurt Set For Exclusive Online Concert From The Sound House, Dublin
Born in Belfast, raised in Scotland and living in Wexford, Robin James Hurt’s talents as
a guitarist, singer and composer have brought him on a rich and varied path.
As well as releasing albums and having music featured on soundtracks, Robin is a hugely popular live performer, mixing traditional Celtic and original music with firecracker energy and flare, notching up several hundred shows a year from festivals (Glastonbury, Electric Picnic) to concert venues to intimate pub sessions.
Robin James Hurt was one of the first Irish artists to embrace livestreaming as a way of reaching his fanbase when lockdown hit last March. His weekly “Live from Kilmichael” livestreams on Facebook and YouTube, broadcast from his fireside, quickly attracted a following of thousands from all corners of the globe - and led to his acclaimed new album of the same name.
But the thrill, the passion of performing onstage under the lights has been lacking.
Says Robin, “I'm primarily a full time live performer and I play music to be heard. I can't explain how much I miss it. I'm so excited about this because I can play a full show on stage in a great venue and people can tune in and join in from anywhere in the world. It's a global gig!”
Robin James Hurt is proud to return to the live stage with an exclusive online-only concert at The Sound House, Dublin on Sunday May 23rd at 7.30pm UTC/local time (8.30pm CET, 2.30pm EST)
This show will feature a full production with venue lighting and HD quality Video and Audio and will be streamable on any device.
Robin will perform a full concert set, including special guests..Sinead O’Connor Ringwood – vocal (“Caledonia” duet) Clare Faherty (Band Of Moonlight Love) - concertina
