Tickets for Kahane's show are on sale now.
Islander presents composer, pianist, and singer, Gabriel Kahane’s debut Irish show at The Studio in the National Concert Hall, Dublin, 8.30 p.m. on April 9.
The day after the 2016 presidential election, singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane boarded a train at Penn Station and travelled 8,980 miles around the continental U.S. with no phone or internet access, talking to dozens of strangers in an attempt to better understand his country and fellow citizens.
The resulting album, Book of Travelers, marks Gabriel’s debut for Nonesuch Records. By turns sprawling and intimate, this collection of songs is at once a prayer for empathy and reconciliation, as well as an unflinching examination of the complex and often troubled history of the United States.
Gabriel has collaborated with many artists including Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird (he recently orchestrated and co-performed an evening for him with the Los Angeles Philharmonic), Chris Thile, Paul Simon, and many orchestras and chamber music ensembles.
Tickets priced at €15 are available from www.nch.ie, or from the box office, phone 01 417 0000.
