DAVID KEENAN – ‘EV­I­DENCE OF LIV­ING’

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TAKE -

Dun­dalk singer-song­writer David Keenan has blos­somed into a sto­ry­telling trou­ba­dour who harks back to such Ir­ish lit­er­ary greats as Beck­ett, Be­han and Yeats. Ev­i­dence Of Liv­ing is proof of Keenan’s in­flu­ences, a seven minute pi­ano- driven song in which the voice and lyrics are cen­tre stage, singing of a man with “a face like an aul painter’s ra­dio,” and “kids who dreams died in fifth class.” NIALL BYRNE
