Film aficionados brace yourselves, as one of Ireland’s oldest cinemas is officially up and running again after 13 years of closure.

This week, we caught up with Dublin singer-songwriter, Kevin Casey. Having played 1,200 shows with former band Jaker, Kevin recently took on the challenge of creating his own sound in a new solo career. That sound has been described as somewhere between Whiskeytown, Elton John, Springsteen and Oasis. Performances to date have embodied a dynamic charisma and natural melodic ability, leaving audiences hungry for more. Kevin and the band are gearing up for their massive album launch next Saturday, November 18th at the Sound House pub on Eden Quay. It’s sure to be an amazing show and there will be top support on the night from Brew Mbirika (Bluesun), Jermiah Day, […]
