Due to phenomenal demand, Boyles of Slane are delighted to announce an extra date for Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell’s “Some songs and Stories” show in January.
Tickets for the first gig sold out within a few hours earlier this week. The second show will take place on Friday 18 January and tickets will go on sale this Friday 9am from Boyles Facebook page and the Ticket Tailor link below.
The first time Aslan's Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell played at Slane was opening for David Bowie at Slane Castle. They have returned to Slane to play Boyles Of Slane a number of years ago and have always wanted to return.... and they will do so on 18 and 25 January 2019.
"The 'Some Songs & Stories' show gives us the opportunity to return to Slane and have some fun playing Aslan songs along with some (David) Bowie tracks who we love, and who we opened for in Slane back in 87," says Christy Dignam.
Childhood friends and Aslan co-founders, Dignam and Jewell will perform a memorable show of new material, numbers from Aslan's extensive back catalogue and cover's of tracks by bands that have inspired them including Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie and ballads including 'The Green Fields of France'.
While music will be the focus of the gig, Christy and Joe will also banter with the audience retelling the stories behind some of their songs and regaling the audience with tales from Aslan's' many years on the road and almost definitely their Slane Castle gig.
This show promises to be a magical evening in the company of two legends of the Irish music scene.
Boyles Of Slane have also added a gig with Kiera Dignam on Saturday Feb 16th (Valentines week), which will be free of charge and no ticket required.
Kiera’s been singing since the age of 13 and gigging around Ireland and Europe, having preformed at the 3Arena and in venues such as Vicar Street, Iveagh Garden, The Olympia Theatre and filling venues weekly around Ireland with her own band this is also a gig not to be missed.
The show at Boyles will be something a bit different for Kiera, an acoustic gig (with band) covering some of her favourite songs to sing and artists like Janis Joplin, Pink, Beyonce, Guns n Roses, Lauren Hill loads more.
