This show laced with poetry, theatre and music, will open with a storytelling, comedic brilliance from Evanne Kilgallon entitled Jester’s Privilege, which will bleed into a full band and solo set by David Keenan, who’ll be playing songs from every album.
An actress, playwright and performer, Evanne Kilgallon’s work in recent years has skyrocketed her onto the forefront of the Irish theatre scene. Most recently, the young Irish actress has started filming a lead role in Chris O’Dowds new Sky TV show “Small Town, Big Story,” starring alongside Christina Hendricks and Paddy Considine.
In the midst of working on her first one woman play, “Jester’s Privilege,” the pair had a lightbulb moment: to come together and put on a gig unlike anything happening at the moment; to put on a night full of theatre, stand-up, music and poetry. And so Geimhreadh Galore! was born
With no intermission, the show will start with Evanne’s theatrical performance and flow directly into Keenan’s set. While slightly different and vastly more unique than a typical gig, fans of Keenan’s will be happy to know that all the hits and singalongs are still part of the atypical plan.
“People will still be able to sing the hits, they’ll just be delivered in a different way as every gig is different,” the singer confirms. “We’ll be bringing in some songs off my fourth album that I’m working on at the moment, and there will be many moments to sing along and for jokes to be told.”
