Songs and stories by Dignam and Jewell at Whale Theatre

Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell will perform songs and stories at Whale Theatre on Thursday, March 21.

The intimate acoustic show features some well known Aslan songs plus many songs by other artists that influenced Christy and Joe throughout their career.

The lads tell some great stories about their lives in Aslan. Christy Dignam is regarded as one of Ireland's greatest singers and performers. Despite his recent health scare, he is still performing and has never sounded better. U2's Bono is a big fan of Christy, and has said 'What a voice, what a voice , the Angel of Dublin". U2 invited Christy to perform with them at their recent sold out Dublin gigs , but Christy had a prior engagement  at a charity fundraiser show, and had to turn down the invite from the biggest rock band in the world.

There is some great humour in some of the stories that Christy and Joe tell, they having been two lifelong friends since childhood in Finglas, Dublin who lived the rock and roll dream, and survived to tell the tale.

Tickets are €24 and available at whaletheatre.ie.
