As part of Black History Month, Brew Mbirika originally from New York City but resident in Dublin will give a talk and live performance as well as a Q&A session at the Tivoli Backstage, Dublin on Thursday 16 February.
Famed troubadour, BREW, of the Dublin melodic rock group BLUESUN will play a unique show entailing a talk from him detailing his life in Ireland as a black American artist who was recently naturalised Irish after having lived in Dublin for over 20 years – Brew’s ancestry despite being born American is a combination of African and Filipino heritage. This is a rare opportunity to gain insight into the personality behind the music of Brew.
“This will be a UNIQUE GIG for me!!! Black History Month Gig Series… hmm surprise folks I’m half Filipino as well …Better brush up on historical facts,,, am I the 2nd black Irishman in this biz?? I promise loads of insight and will take NUMEROUS questions but my PUNK side warns beware of the answers”
Doors open at 8pm at The Tivoli Backstage Pub at 18/19 Francis Street, Dublin 8 with show starting at 9pm
