A BIG OF WHAT YOU NANCI
Griffith tours Ireland in August
Nanci Griffith makes a welcome return to Ireland this August with three shows, the first on Wednesday August 6 in LIT, Limerick then a pair of Galway shows on Thursday 7 and Friday August 8 in the Town Hall Theatre.
The woman who gave us the expression ‘Other Voices, Other Rooms’ has been recognised since the outset of her career almost three decades ago as a writer of startling depth and subtlety as well as a formidable interpreter of other people’s songs. Bob Dylan, for example, specifically requested that she sing ‘Boots of Spanish Leather’ at his historic Madison Square Garden anniversary concert.
