Bap Kennedy In Concert
David Hull Promotions presents Bap Kennedy In Concert on Friday 20 July in the Gallery Bar at 9pm. Bap Kennedy returns home to Belfast after a 20 year exile, he continues to write and produce great music.
For a man who has worked with Steve Earle and Van Morrison, to name just two, an offer to record an album in the Dire Straits frontman's own studio was another musical milestone.
'The Sailor's Revenge', the album that Kennedy wrote and Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) produced, features songwriting that grows stronger with every listen - assisted, of course, by Knopfler's distinctive delicious guitar and tasteful widescreen production.
