David Connor in Concert

Wednesday, 30th December 2020

Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm

 

Claremorris man David Connor will perform his very first headline show in the Theatre on Wednesday, 30th December 2020. David grew up listening to Irish and American Country music, MidWest Radio was a staple in the Connor household, as David says himself; “I was reared on Country”.

Drawing influences from Liam Reilly (Bagatelle), John Fogarty (Creedance Clearwater Revival) and Garth Brooks to name a few, David has always liked songs with good stories and great vocals.

David and his band “Southern Revival” have performed at many gigs and events around the West of Ireland. He has performed with a variety of artists including Finbar Furey, the Keane Family and Eunice Moran.  More recently, David performed his debut single “As She’s Walking Away” at the sold out “Local Stars” concert that took place in the Theatre back in January.

In August of this year, David shot to number 1 in the Irish iTunes Country charts, beating off competition from none other than Taylor Swift, with his lively, catchy song: “You Couldn’t Have Come At A Better Time”. Written by Luka Bloom; “You Couldn’t Have Come At A Better Time” is a lively tune based on the air of the Kesh Jig. The song combines both the Folk and the Trad genres. Once David heard the song he felt it had the potential to crossover to the Country music genre too.  The music video was filmed at various locations throughout Claremorris and can be found on YouTube by clicking here.

With David’s growing popularity, there is no doubt that he will pack the Theatre this Christmas. We expect tickets to move fast for this concert, early booking is advisable.
