With an indoor date slated for Set later this year, Jack L is making a return to Kilkenny’s Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre next month and tickets are on sale now.
A previous guest of the venue, the Kildare native makes a welcome return to Ballykeeffe for a double-bill performance on Saturday.
Mick Flannery and Susan O’Neill were the most recent guests, also performing two shows per day due to Covid restrictions.
While their show was limited to 100 attendees per performance, it is expected that numbers will be able to increase for Jack L’s show as Covid restrictions begin to ease futher from 5 July.
Tickets are on sale now from eventbrite.ie priced €25 plus booking fee. Tickets are being sold in “pods” of two or four due to venue restrictions and social distancing requirements.
Note that gates open an hour previous, there are no bar facilities on site, and as it’s an outdoor performance you should dress for the occasion and don’t be afraid to bring a picnic.
About Jack L
In 2017 Jack’s album, “Magic Days”, was a massive hit in Ireland with two sold-out nights at Dublin’s National Concert Hall and Vicar St.
From 2017-19, Jack has been touring continually internationally with artists such as Imelda May, Jools Holland and The Proclaimers.
His most new album ‘Streamed: the Best of the Lockdown Sessions’ features songs that first appeared on a hugely popular weekly live stream (in which each week Jack would learn the songbook of artists that had influenced him (Dylan, Bowie, Cohen etc.) and perform a ninety-minute special live each Saturday night.
His fans then voted on their favourite tracks, and Jack then re-recorded the fifteen most popular choices. The 18-month series of Jack’s streams has had over 400,000 views. A new album of original material is expected for release in 2022.
