Brian Kennedy @ the Westville Hotel
Brian Kennedy is one of Ireland’s most inspired and revered ambassadors of music. He is not only a prolific songwriter but a master interpreter of lyrics as well, and audiences around the world continue to praise his exceptional vocal talents. Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, the multi-platinum recording artist remains one of Ireland’s most popular singing stars.
With “a voice to charm the angels,” Brian survived a childhood on the infamous Falls Road, West Belfast, at the height of its hellish history against all the odds to carve an extraordinary career in music. “Without exaggeration it’s a pure miracle that I survived my childhood and became a singer really, given where and how my life started, but somehow my voice had other plans and saved me in the end." That voice set him on a course that changed his life forever. During Lockdown Brian recorded and co-wrote the song ‘Things Are Gonna Change’ with Boy George (released April, 2020).
Throughout lockdown Brian presented a fortnightly up close and personal show live on Facebook called ‘A Night In With Brian Kennedy’. Each show has a new set of his most popular songs, guests and chat, all streamed live from Dublin at 8.00pm. The shows have so far reached a combined audience of over 150,000
Unfortunately, in late June Brian suffered a major heart attack and he needed a quadruple bypass operation that saved his life. It was the third time that he had to learn to walk again but as ever he soldiered through that with incredible success. As if that wasn’t enough, he contracted Covid but because he was doubly vaccinated, he was able to recover fully at home and his spirit and voice are stronger than ever. As his song RECOVERY says, “You just can’t keep a good man down, that’s what my doctor says”. He has recently returned to the stage now Covid restrictions have lifted and it’s an understatement to say he’s singing better than ever. Brian is back better than before and looking forward to performing live again.
