Wexford based songwriter Imelda Kehoe will perform a one-night only gig in Wexford Arts Centre on Friday, February 8, at 8.30 p.m.

For the gig Kehoe will be backed by a full band featuring some of the finest musicians in Wexford.

On the night she will showcase some of the new songs she's working on for a forthcoming album due out this year, and the set will also feature material from her critically acclaimed album 'How to be Human' which was released to rave reviews last year.

Some critics described listening to her as being akin to 'having a conversation with a dear friend'.

'As a listener you're kept at arm's length but wrapped up in the journey like the stories are your own,' said one reviewer from the website Musician.ie.

As a songwriter she excels but it's her vocal qualities that bring her material to an altogether different level and that's something that she doesn't' just reserve for the studio as she is perfectly able to replicate live what she puts down on computer.

There is sure to be a lot of interest in this gig and with the doors opening at 8 p.m. the good advice is to get along early.

There is also an added reason to be there in plenty of time as the special guest Odi is another local act creating quite a buzz on the local music scene.

Tickets for the gig are now available from the Wexford Arts Centre box office at 053 9123764 or through boxoffice@wexfordartscentre.ie.
