Kieran Goss with guest Annie Kinsella to perform at Hook Lighthouse

On Saturday evening July 1st internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Kieran Goss who will also be joined by special guest Annie Kinsella will host an evening concert in the Hook Lighthouse Tower.

Long hailed as one of Ireland’s leading songwriters and performers, Kieran Goss’s music has won him fans across the globe. But if his songs have made him a star, his live shows have made him a legend.

Touring commitments abroad mean that that Kieran and his wife Annie are rarely home in Ireland. Kieran says, “We’ve been playing 150 -200 shows a year for many years and only a handful of those would ever be in Ireland. We made a decision last year that we wanted to be home more, particularly in the summer and so we decided to have an annual ‘Home for the Summer’ tour taking in beautiful spots along the coast in Westport, Kerry, West Cork and County Clare. And I’m delighted to say we’ve been invited to perform in Hook Lighthouse. A spectacular venue, we’re really looking forward to it.”

Kieran will perform the first half of the show solo and will be joined on stage in the second half by harmony singer Annie Kinsella. As Time Out Magazine wrote of their performance together: “Individually, they are both gifted singers but when they sing together, magic happens… the harmonies, the chemistry… just sublime.”

This is a rare chance to see Kieran performing in this beautiful venue.
