Tickets for the tour go on sale tomorrow
Following the release of his lauded second album, The Great Irish Famine, back in September, Junior Brother has announced an upcoming tour of England, Scotland and Wales.
Kicking off at Birkenhead on April 18, the tour will continue on to Oxford, Glasgow, York, Brighton, Birmingham, Newport and London.
To coincide with the news, he's also shared a special live video of 'No More Dogs', filmed at his headline show at The Button Factory in Dublin late last year.
Shot by Adam Heffernan and Niall Sheeran, and edited by Heffernan, the video's sound was mixed by acclaimed producer John "Spud" Murphy.
'No More Dogs' is taken from The Great Irish Famine – which scored a nomination at last year's RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards for Best Folk Album, as well as earning the Kerry singer-songwriter a nod for Best Folk Singer.
"His is a voice that’s as far removed from the mainstream as it’s possible to get, in a similar manner to that other folk outlier, Cavan’s Lisa O’Neill," John Walshe wrote in his review of the album for Hot Press. "The other thing that both artists share is an uncompromising, lyrical talent that shines through everything they do...
"A strange but wonderful trip," he added.
The announcement follows an appearance on The Tommy Tiernan Show last weekend.
Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale tomorrow, February 17, at 10am.
