Brian plays re­mark­able show for a full house


Bray People - - Aboutgreystones -

ONE OF Ire­land’s best loved tal­ents and crit­i­cally ac­claimed singer/song­writ­ers, Brian Kennedy, played to a full house at Grey­stones the­atre last Thurs­day night.

The man who has been de­scribed as a nat­u­ral born com­mu­ni­ca­tor held the au­di­ence cap­tive with his re­mark­able mu­si­cal tal­ent for al­most two hours.

The Grey­stones au­di­ence were treated to some old favourites along with some re­cent sounds from his most re­cent al­bum, In­ter­pre­ta­tions.

As the ti­tle sug­gests, Brian, re­fresh­ingly gives his in­ter­pre­ta­tions to a unique col­lec­tion of beau­ti­ful songs which in­clude the first sin­gle ‘Galileo’ (De­clan O’Rourke), ‘Gaye’ (Clif­ford T Ward). ‘Get It Right Next Time’ (Gerry Raf­ferty) ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ (Van Mor­ri­son).

The al­bum is full of great sur­prises as Brian ef­fort­lessly crosses mu­si­cal gen­res and eras – songs from the past and present. And on stage Brian per­formed each and ev­ery song ef­fort­lessly.

‘In­ter­pre­ta­tions’ has been de­scribed as a cel­e­bra­tion of qual­ity and tal­ent from one of Ire­land’s most pro­lific singers.

The Belfast born tal­ent started his amaz­ing ca­reer af­ter be­ing spot­ted by an­other great Ir­ish tal­ent, Van Mor­ri­son. From there Brian went on to tour with Van on his renowned Blues and Soul World Tour for six years, per­form­ing with such mu­si­cal icons as Bob Dy­lan, Ray Charles, Van Mor­ri­son, Joni Mitchell and many many more. Since then Brian has never looked back and has be­come one of Ire­land’s favourite artists.
