Singer songwriter Eamon Keane is set to make a return to the National Concert Hall with saxophonist Michael Buckly this July.

Eamon, nephew of the late John B Keane, received five standing ovations at his sold-out gig last September and is set to wow the audience once again on July 8.

Keane recently composed the score for Mna Dibeartha , a four part drama documentary on the Irish Famine, which won the Special Jury Prize at the Houston Festival in the US.

He has also completed the main piano title theme for Rita Lawlor’s latest film and has been commissioned to write the score for independent movie Running To Stand which is currently shooting in Thailand.

Eamon also wrote the original music for the Siobhain Lynam’s acclaimed RTE radio documentary ‘The Irishwoman Who Shot Mussolini’ which won Gold at the New York Festival.  

Fans can expect Eamon to perform songs from his album Hang The Moon and from his forthcoming album Call On Me Again.

Eamon’s guest Michael Buckley has been touring with Glen Hansard and recently played with Joni Mitchell’s band.

Eamon Keane, National Concert Hall, July 8, 8pm.  Tickets €20, www.nch.ie or 01-4170000.  www.eamonkeanemusic.com
