Iconic singer-songwriter Donovan is set to return to live music for the first time in over two years – and he's selected Sea Church in Ballycotton, Co. Cork as the venue, with a headline show on Sunday, May 1.
The Scottish native, who rose to fame in the '60s with hit singles like 'Sunshine Superman', 'Cath The Wind', 'Colours', 'Universal Soldier', 'Mellow Yellow' and 'Hurdy Gurdy Man', now lives near Mallow, Co. Cork with his wife Linda.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential songwriters working today, Donovan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.
"I especially chose a small Cork County venue as the first for me to return to Live Concert after the long closure of concert halls, to thank the people of Cork County where Linda and I call home," Donovan says.
“We’re honoured that Donovan has chosen Sea Church for his first live performance in more than two years," says Sea Church General Manager John Kidney. "Donovan has won numerous awards over the years, including The Ivor Novello Award for Songwriting for his first song at the age of just 18. His popular artistic talent has been seen and played all over the world, and his return to the dramatic coastal venue of Sea Church is certainly not one to be missed."
The Sea Church is a unique venue, housed in a fully refurbished Church of Ireland church. The church, which first opened in 1835, and has been restored as a multi-purpose entertainment venue.
A very limited number of tickets for the performance are on sale now. Tickets are €35 plus fees and are available on seachurch.ie
Other upcoming shows at Sea Church include Stockton's Wing (April 16), Ardal O'Hanlon (22), Junior Brother (23), Sarah Gilroy (27) and John Spillane (30).
