Swimming in Mercury Tour 2016

Boo Hewerdine + Special Guest Dan Whitehouse

Venue: Macdevitts South Street (Directions)

Tue 15 Nov, 20:00


Boo Hewerdine and Dan Whitehouse

Two acclaimed English songwriters and label mates touring together for the first time, both with new albums (released leading into the Autumn tour). The artists first met on a songwriting weekend and later spent time co-writing songs for Dan Whitehouse's new album and EP.

Boo Hewerdine is well known as one of the greatest (and busiest) songwriter performers in the business, but incredibly, it's been 7 years since Boo released his last studio album of original material. Not that Hewerdine has been inactive, far from it, the period has been the most productive of his career.

an Whitehouse releases his new album That's Where I Belong on September 2nd 2016. His career to date is a story of slow burn success, built upon positive word of mouth for his three self-released recordings and the many thousands of long, hard miles he's spent touring around Europe, opening for a diverse range of talented artists including Josh Ritter, Julian Cope, Maria McKee, Mark Eitzel, Jesca Hoop, Peter Green, Richard Thompson, Lau, Sun Kill Moon and Willy Mason.
