Thursday 9th January, 2020 - 20:00€23 – €25
The UK-based Kildare man and musical legend, Jack Lukeman, returns to Riverbank Arts Centre for a very special show.
Jack Lukeman is a singer-songwriter, performer, raconteur and a whole lot more besides. He is a platinum-selling, a critically acclaimed artist who continues to win a worldwide fan base with his unique multi-octave voice. Jack has toured as a special guest with artists such as Sting, Imelda May, Jools Holland & The Proclaimers.
Tonight’s show will draw material from his back catalogue of albums including Metropolis Blue, Magic Days, Northern Lights, the 27 Club.
‘Lukeman is a compelling, dazzling stage performer. Incorporating the theatrical and romantic sensibilities of the likes of Jacques Brel, Jim Morrison, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits but with his own genuine melodic appeal and a knack for creating a ‘magic realist’ world that is peopled by all manner of unusual, picaresque characters, Lukeman is a rare, unique brand of performer in the modern age’. Edinburgh Spotlight Magazine
‘Lukeman’s voice is powerful and fluid. His range is impressive, from the deep baritone resonance of When The Moon Is High to the aching falsetto of the magnificent Rooftop Lullaby’
