I was sad that Karan Casey had to cancel at the last moment due to her mother's brain cancer and emergency surgery. Susan McKeown was a great choice replacement. She and John Doyle's unexpected reunion after 17 years made for special evening in it's own rights.
I asked to sit in the front row and was very pleased with the intimacy of that seating. I normally sit further back. Unbeatable service at the Triple Door, from attentive servers to sound and production quality.
With the discounted tickets via Goldstar, I am happy to be able to go out and hear more music than I would otherwise during this down ecomomy.
Once heard, you would never take Grammy-award-winning vocalist Susan McKeown for anyone else. After singing on the streets of her native Dublin as a teenager, Susan left for New York with a bursary from The Arts Council of Ireland and a scholarship to the American Musical & Dramatic Academy, and soon became a regular performer at the legendary East Village club Sin-É. The enlivening intelligence of her songs marked Susan as a distinctive talent. Her debut album Bones (1995) garnered wide critical acclaim, established her reputation as an inventive songwriter with a powerful voice, and set her on the road to an international touring and recording career. Along the way she has boldly yet lovingly re-imagined Celtic music, bringing it immeasurably enhanced – yet spiritually intact – into the new era of world music. Ten albums later Susan has a catalog of music that solidly spans the realms of world music and rock.
John Doyle gifts as a guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, and producer have played an essential role in the ongoing renaissance of Irish traditional music. As a member of Irish-American supergroup Solas — and a highly sought-after session player — Doyle pioneered a rhythmic, sophisticated approach to Irish guitar accompaniment, setting a new standard for the instrument.
