Fionn Regan is a difficult man to pin down musically. Just two albums into an extremely promising career, this sublimely gifted singer-songwriter has already demonstrated a staggering lack of regard for following the rules.
Regan’s calling card was the beautiful Mercury-nominated The End Of History which included songs such as ‘Be good or be gone’ and ‘Put a penny in the slot’. Rather than follow it up with more of the same pastoral loveliness, he made The Shadow of an Empire, and with it didn’t so much flaunt convention, as trample all over it to produce a collection every bit as beguiling as its predecessor, but bursting with more ideas and sounds than some acts have in a lifetime. We await his next album due in early August with bated breath. In the meantime, be one of the first to hear some brand new material, and enjoy a special solo acoustic performance from one of the most mercurial musical talents around.
Don’t miss this unforgettable evening Saturday July 16th at 8pm.

‘Likened to a young Bob Dylan by those lost for a better way to describe a talented singer-songwriter-His material certainly stands up to the test’ Mail on Sunday
