Joe Chester Live at the Grand Social this December

Renowned Irish musician, Joe Chester, rounds of a successful year, with an intimate show at Dublin’s Grand Social on Wednesday December 13th. Joe will be ably assisted on the night by his close friends Vyvienne Long, and Steve Wickham.

2017 saw Joe Chester have his most prolific year in quite a few years. The Dublin singer, songwriter, and producer, released a trinity of albums in a nine-month period.

February saw the release of his latest studio album, ‘The Easter Vigil’, a narrative on his changing relationship with the Catholic Church over the course of his life. He marked the release with a show at Dublin’s Unitarian Church in late April, and the recordings from that night were released as ‘Live at Unitarian Church’ in September.

Then there was the, far from small, matter of re-issuing his 2005 album ‘A Murder of Crows’, which received wide acclaim upon its original release., The 2017 edition of the album is enhanced with demo, live, and unreleased recordings from the period in which it was originally released.
