Kieran Halpin at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Edinburgh FC welcomes back Kieran Halpin who hasn't played here for about three years; far too long!

If the measure of a songwriter is the number of artists singing their songs then Kieran Halpin must be considered a great modern writer of songs. There can be few writers on the acoustic/folk scene in Europe today who have had more songs covered. Names like Ilse De Lange (All The Answers), Vin Garbutt, Dolores Keane, The Battlefield Band, John Wright, Flossie, Niamh Parsons, Chris Jones and countless more have recorded Kieran's songs. Folk like that, some famous and others less so, have taken his songs - translated into German, Finnish and Spanish - into folk clubs, pubs, concert halls and festivals all over the world. Often the songs are better known than the writer himself! Kieran has recorded albums in his native Ireland, Scotland, London, Nashville, Oxford and Sydney.

To date Kieran has released 22 CDs and three songbooks with 137 songs published in all three!! It is a remarkable achievement for any artist to be so prolific and still maintain such high standards.

2017 saw the release of Halpins CD, Doll, containing 11 new songs, recorded and produced by legendary German producer Manfred Leuchter. The songs range widely from love, loss and celebration, to the more global concerns that face all of us today and Kieran has often been described as a modern protest song writer. He is never afraid to tackle topics that will provoke opinion and debate.

Kieran's albums are always something to look forward to but it is live on stage where he really makes his mark, at once powerful and passionate, intimate and intense. He has managed to marry his intelligent and thought-provoking lyrics with great melodies and has developed over the years into a writer with a style unique and readily identifiable underscored by an incisive wit in his song introductions which helps an audience understand where the song comes from and hint at where it might be going.

Kieran is equally at home playing to the intimate audience of a small folk club or to a large festival crowd. He is also one of the hardest touring musicians on the scene today with upwards of 160 shows per year all over the world.
