While po­si­tioned for most peo­ple firmly un­der the radar, Ir­ish singer, song­writer and pro­ducer Joe Ch­ester is the go-to per­son for quite a few well-known mu­sic acts (in­clud­ing Hozier, The Coronas, Gemma Hayes, The Wa­ter­boys). That his solo record­ing ca­reer has been vir­tu­ally over­looked by all but the avid fan is surely equal parts frus­trat­ing (for Ch­ester) and shame­ful (every­one else). He un­der­takes some shows over the next few weeks in sup­port of his lat­est, su­perb al­bum, The Easter Vigil. Fur­ther gigs in­clude next Fri­day, April 28, at Uni­tar­ian Church, Dublin, where Ch­ester will be joined by Vyvi­enne Long and Steve Wick­ham. Gigs in May in­clude Spirit Store, Dun­dalk, Co Louth (solo, May 4), and Crane Lane Theatre, Cork (with Vyvi­enne Long, May 27).
