American jazz and blues singer-songwriter Madeline Peyroux has announced a one-off show with her band at The National Concert Hall on November 20. The gig follows a sold-out show in the Olympia Theatre last year.
Peyroux's career began 22 years ago, with the release of her debut album Dreamland - and since then, she has released eight albums and travelled and performed around the world.
Peyroux's new album, Anthem, sees her collaborate with writers and musicians such as Brian MacLeod (Sara Bareilles, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Ziggy Marley), Patrick Warren (Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen) and Davied Baerwald (Joni Mitchell, David and David, Sheryl Crow).
Anthem, which was produced and co-written by Larry Klein (Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell), was inspired by the 2016 US Presidential elections, which is reflected in the poignant and thoughtful tone of the songs within it. There are two covers on the album; the title track is a cover of Leonard Cohen's magnificent 'Anthem', and Peyroux also covers Paul Eluard's WW2 poem Liberté.
Tickets cost €45 [including booking fee] and go on sale Friday 20 April at 9am from the National Concert Hall Box Office.
