Duke set to play Spe­cial town gig

Bray People - - News -

DUKE SPE­CIAL has been sell­ing out tours across Ire­land, the UK and Europe since the un­prece­dented suc­cess of his al­bum From The Deep For­est.

He mem­o­rably stage-dove at Elec­tric Pic­nic and we cer­tainly hope for a re­peat of the per­for­mance when he plays an in­ti­mate gig in Grey­stones The­atre to­mor­row evening.

Duke Spe­cial has come fur­ther than he ever imag­ined, hav­ing sup­ported Crowded House on their last tour, given Duffy her first ever shows and guested for Ray Davies in Lon­don. He also per­formed at The Ir­ish Film Board’s pres­ti­gious Os­car Wilde event in LA in the pre­am­ble to the Os­cars.

The Belfast song­writer, born Peter Wil­son, is cur­rently learn­ing to sword­fight for an up­com­ing stage show­down with his long time neme­sis, Neil Hannon! Neil, oth­er­wise known as The Div­ing Com­edy, is sure to be pre­pared for the clash.

Speak­ing of the Clash, Grey­stones The­atre will once again host lo­cals Uni­ver­sal Funk Or­ches­tra on Satur­day night when they take on The Clash’s Lon­don Call­ing.
