Luke Concannon, who is a founder member of Nizlopi, writer of legendary UK no. 1 hit ‘the JCB song’, and referred to by Ed Sheeran as his “childhood hero”, will host a day-long workshop in Dublin on 20 August.
This workshop is a rare chance to invest in a relaxed supportive fun-filled day of inspiration, ideas, tricks and tools to fire-up your creativity and songwriting. A chance for people of all abilities to write, play, learn and connect with others. Limited places available.
Luke Concannon is a fiercely passionate English singer-songwriter who, with his own record label, has sold millions of records across the world while keeping his feet firmly on the ground.
Like so many English artists including Ed Sheeran, Oasis, Morrissey, Lennon and McCartney, Luke grew up in an English household rooted in Irish heritage and the traditions of family gatherings and sing-songs.
His band Nizlopi achieved mass fame with their no.1 hit the JCB song which was written as a beautiful ode from a young Luke to his father.
Nizlopi had a famously D.I.Y approach and their raw energy inspired a young Ed Sheeran to become one of their biggest fans. Ed cites them as a major influence on his approach to music, calling Luke “my childhood hero”.
As a teenager the young Ed volunteered with the band as a technician and learned the ropes of performing.
Luke and Ed recently wrote a song together called Streets of Boston, which will feature on Luke’s forthcoming second solo album.
Luke currently lives in the U.S and continues to perform internationally as well as offering creative coaching and workshops.
Some scholarships and discounts available to those with financial constraints. Email: [email protected]
