Exciting young star brings top night of music
Published at 16:25, Thursday, 07 June 2012
ONE of the most exciting young stars of the UK folk scene will be paying a visit to Kendal for a top night of traditional music tomorrow night.
Damien O’Kane has been earning a growing reputation for his innovative interpretations of songs from his native Northern Ireland.
Best known for his work with Shona Kipling, he released his debut album, Summer Hill, in 2010, which features the talents of acclaimed musicians such as Michael McGoldrick, Ian Carr and celebrated Yorkshire songstress Kate Rusby – who is also his wife.
Having spent a year with Anglo-Irish super group Flook, his banjo playing took him to venues around the world.
His banjo playing in particular has led to him being regarded as one of the finest Irish players on the scene today and he is winning accolades as a singer.
The show at the Brewery Arts Centre tomorrow night starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the venue’s box office.
