On Friday October 26th rising Galway singer Ultan Conlon will play the 3 Arena in Dublin as special guest of former Creedance Clearwater Revival singer John Fogerty at his Blues Fest concert with Steve Miller band.
2018 has been hugely successful for Ultan Conlon who has toured Ireland and the UK with Eddi Reader and The Stunning, sold out a headline show at Whelan’s in Dublin in April to launch his new album in April and played his most high-profile show to date at the Trinity College Summer Series as special guest of Bryan Ferry.
Ultan Conlon’s third studio album ‘Last Days of The Night Owl’, which was mixed by Grammy award winning producer Collin Dupuis in Nashville TN, was chosen Album of the Week by RTE Radio 1 with the lead single ‘The Measure’ sitting at No.1 on the Radio One airplay chart for four weeks in April / May. Ultan Conlon has just released a second single from the album, a brilliant duet with Mary Coughlan of his song ‘A Weak Heart Like Mine’.
Ultan Conlon has a special ability at capturing the human spirit through his lyrics, which have been honed over almost two decades of writing and performing. The quality of his songwriting is equally matched by his powerful yet fragile voice that critics have likened to the great Roy Orbison.
Ultan Conlon toured the west coast of US last year and as guest of the Watkins Family Hour performed with Jackson Browne, Shelby Lynne and Benmont Tench of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers fame at the famous Largo club in Los Angeles. Ultan Conlon has also performed with Glen Hansard and John Martyn who has recorded one of Ultan’s earlier songs ‘Really Gone’.
