GET into the Christmas Spirit this weekend at An Grianán Theatre and see Duke Special, with support from In Their Thousands, or maybe you’re the Crooner-type.
This coming Saturday night there’s a very special double bill at An Grianan. One of An Grianan’s favourite artists, Duke Special, is joined by returning local heroes In Their Thousands. Tickets are only €17.50 for this amazing line up.
Duke Special is a Belfast artist with a unique sound, often referred to as vaudeville. His songs are shaped by an omnipresent piano, harps, brass, strings and, his trademark on stage – an old gramophone.
The results are romantic and passionate little hymns with the Duke’s soft vocals. From headlining a packed-to-the-rafters Shepherds Bush Empire in London to stage diving at Electric Picnic, hosting five nights back-to-back at Belfast’s Empire Music Hall, being twice nominated for the Choice Music Prize for Album of the year, Duke Special has come further than he ever imagined he might and his latest CD has inspired rave reviews.
Perfect for sharing with family and friends this slick production hits An Grianan Theatre this Friday night, and is bound to have you feeling merry enough to last you the whole season including the music and songs of the legendary Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.
A fantastic cast of West-End Singers, backed by the superb and talented Jazz All-Stars, perform over 30 Christmas hits and and even swing arrangements of Christmas hymns.
