The 2019 Kennedy Summer School will open on Thursday, September 5th 2019 and legendary singer and songwriter Brian Kennedy will host the opening evening concert.
The multi-platinum selling singer and songwriter Brian Kennedy will host a unique hour-long concert at St. Michael’s Theatre in New Ross from 9 to 10 pm. The chart-topping Belfast born singer with the voice of an angel is known for his ballads and has also represented Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest. His career has spanned three decades with two multi-platinum selling albums and awards for best male artist and best album.
Brian has toured with the legendary Van Morrison and has shared the global stage with some of the all-time greats including Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles amongst much more and has toured the world performing his chart-topping songs.
2017 has been a very busy year for Brian. After a sell-out run at the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, he recently released the triple ‘Live at Vicar Street, Dublin’ double CD & bonus DVD before heading all the way to China for a 10 date tour with Secret Garden where they had a huge hit with Brian singing ‘You Raise Me Up’.
