Kieran Halpin will be playing our next house concert tomorrow – Election Day. Don’t worry about missing the results, the concert is at 3pm. Cost is $20 and a small plate or beverage contribution to afternoon tea.
This will be a unique opportunity to hear a world class writer and performer in the intimate setting of Musichaven.
To date Halpin has released 22 CD’s, and 3 songbooks with 137 published in all 3!! It is a remarkable achievement for any artist to be so prolific and still maintain such high standards. If the measure of a songwriter is the number of artists singing their songs – then Kieran Halpin must be considered a great modern writer of songs. There can be few writers on the acoustic/folk scene in Europe today who have had more songs covered. Often the songs are better known than the writer himself!
Halpin’s songs cover every conceivable subject from love, loss and celebration, to the more global concerns that face all of us today and is often described as a modern protest song writer. He is never afraid to tackle topics that will provoke opinion and debate. His performances are at once powerful and passionate, intimate and intense. His songs in concert are underscored by an incisive wit in his introductions which helps an audience understand where the song comes from and hint at where it might be going.
2017 sees the release of Halpin’s latest CD – Doll. It contains 11 new songs and was recorded and produced by legendary German producer Manfred Leuchter.
