Joan As Police Woman releases her first career retrospective “Anthology” May 2019 via PIAS. The multi disc set collects thirty of her greatest songs alongside rare and unreleased material. Anthology highlights Joan’s remarkable first fifteen years of writing and recording music that defies categorization. This compilation reveals her dedication to experimentation, vast knowledge and love of music of all kinds.
For her 2019 tour she strips her sound down to its true essence, performing her songbook solo with piano and guitar. This is a concert format her fans have longed to hear since her much loved solo shows in support of her 2006 classic debut album Real Life.
These concerts will see Joan re-imagine many of the key songs from Anthology and play songs from her upcoming second album of covers.
This event is a part of the Earagail Arts Festival – 19 days of music, theatre, visual arts, film, literature, circus & carnival on Ireland’s North West Atlantic seaboard from 10 to 28 July 2019.
