We are very pleased to announce that the Douglas Hyde Gallery will host the first show of Cian Nugent’s upcoming European tour on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7.30pm. With special guest Aoife Nessa Frances.
Early last year the accomplished folk guitarist, who is well known for his intricate extended compositions, released his third album 'Night Fiction'. Featuring a collection of songs with a new emphasis on vocals, the album builds on Nugent’s previous work, nodding to his diverse influences, with the strong support of his long-standing band members. Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh and Niall Lawlor will accompany Cian in a new configuration for the very first time.
Aoife Nessa Frances is a Dublin-born musician and singer-song writer, who after previous musical collaboration, is making her first entry into solo performance. Inspired by the poetic styles of folk music and psychedelic rock, she will be playing solo guitar and singing.
Tickets are available now from our website or from the front desk of the Gallery after Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
