John Grant at the Earagail Arts Festival

This week we can announce another fantastic act for this year’s Earagail Arts Festival, acclaimed singer/songwriter John Grant.

Presented by Earagail Arts Festival in association with Paradigm, John Grant will close this year’s Donegal International Folk & Roots Weekend during the festival.

Grant will perform solo playing songs from across his celebrated career in a rare stripped–back live show at An Grianán Theatre on Sunday, 19th July at 8pm.

A former member of the Denver-based alternative rock band The Czars, the American singer songwriter embarked on a solo career in 2010 with his debut solo album (Queen of Denmark) being named Best Album of the Year by Mojo.

With his fourth solo album Love Is Magic, Grant continues to evolve, creating his most electronic record yet, in collaboration with Benge (Ben Edwards), analogue synth expert/collector and a member of electronic trio Wrangler, Grant’s collaborators earlier this year under the collective name of Creep Show on the album Mr Dynamite.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Fri 28 February. Booking info here.

Grant joins hit musical Good Vibrations as part of a very strong programme for this year’s festival. More events to be announced.
