Pierce Turner - Live in Limerick
Pierce Turner returns for a rare Limerick gig in the intimate and unique surroundings of Tait House.
Continuing his path along the road of uniqueness, Pierce Turner returns from America to this side of the pond for a series of Summer Public Parlour Performances. You can go the big fields and watch a dot up on the stage performing while the sound sails away in the wind. Or you can mingle with like-minded humans in a space where you can see the walls, where there is a ceiling for the sound to return from, where there is oodles of atmosphere and interaction.
Returning from New York after a sold out Joes Pub performance (one of Americas top five venues according to Rolling Stone) with Philip Glass in attendance, Pierce Turner is a dynamic live performer and consummate musician, who has been voted Irelands solo artist of the Year by Hot Press. He has worked on numerous occasions with legendary classical composer Philip Glass. When he performed at Carnegie Hall with headliner Iggy Pop and Patti Smith in 2015, the New York Times and Rolling Stone magazine enthusiastically described it as soaring and A cross between Joni Mitchell and David Bowie. He had a song in HBOs The Wire and Christy Moore has covered his songs. He has a dedicated cult following in Ireland where he resides half of the year, the other being in Manhattan.
Top Irish authors say why they like Pierce Turner:
Joseph OConnor: Pierce Turner is a storyteller, soul man, poet, heartbreaker, with the voice of a choirboy high on rocket fuel. His songs sound like nobody else's. A true and beautiful and utterly unique artist
Kevin Barry: "For many a strange moon, Pierce Turner has been creating some of the most indescribably odd and luminous and beautiful music anywhere - for the old weird Ireland, he is something close to a national treasure."
Eoin Colfer: Pierce Turners lyricism has had a huge influence on my writing. He is a one of a kind genius poet. I wish I had never heard him so I could listen for the first time. Pierce is the only songwriter I know who has made me laugh and cry during the same song
Billy Roche: Ray Davies meets Brian Wilson with a little pinch of James Joyce and you have it - the sublime taste of Turner!
