James Vincent McMorrow announces Irish tour

James Vincent McMorrow by Rich Gillgan.

The Irish singer-songwriter is going on tour in Limerick, Cork, Killarney, Dublin, Belfast, Galway and Kilkenny.

McMorrow’s seventh album Wide open, horses, came to life from a forced bout of creativity and a deadline – to perform a new album in full over two nights in the National Concert Hall in Dublin. A band was assembled for a week of practice and the album was written and performed live. It was then recorded after what was learned from the experienced.

“I literally performed the album before it was recorded,” he smiles. “The whole point was to expose the flaws and also highlight the special little moments. It was an odd experiment, but it worked great. The notion is so simple, ‘Write songs and perform them live’. Without cameras, they were the best shows I’ve ever played—which is interesting because no one knew the music! Everyone was just experiencing it though. I had friends in the lobby talking to strangers. Who talks to strangers anymore? It was lovely. It was a heartening experience for everyone involved.”

Nov 28 – Limerick, University Concert Hall
