David Keenan At Grey Horse Tavern
We are very excited to have this amazing talent, David Keenan, back in the tavern 3/5! Do not miss out on this show!

To describe David Keenans music, I previously offered this: Not just another young lad with an acoustic guitar, Keenan is the sound of Tim Buckley and Brendan Behan arguing over a few jars a suspicious hand of cards, and Anthony Cronin and Jack Kerouac furiously try to scribble it all down. Hyperbole, you might sneer, but David has proven me right several times since. He has grown into the character that he created - the tab-end tapping corner boy with the poets soul, peddling whispered street rumours filtered through the prism of the Sean-nós tradition.
At odds with the music of the age, compressed as it is to an inch beyond its death, Keenans music beguiles you in, his lyrics akin to half-remembered barroom wisdom, that, days later, suddenly makes epiphanic sense. His art remains in a constant state of flux, whether it be sung to an acoustic guitar, delicately played with the small string section currently known as The Organics  navigating the hitherto unexplored hinterland between Nick Drake and Seán Ó Riada - or unleashed with his raucous Unholy Ghosts. That some of the finest musicians in the country are willing to throw in with him, to play dice for his robes, speaks volumes. Like Dylan, Bowie or Prince before him, Keenan is almost too prolific, songs tumbling from brain to pen. By the time you get to hear what hes doing, hes already somewhere else.
But to describe the music, what are the terms available, folk, trad, blues, rock n roll? It is all these things, but the only appellation that suits - the one that best befits all the highest musical expression - is the only one that matters. This is soul music.
