Edinburgh Festival Fringe
We are pleased to announce that Brian will be returning to the largest arts festival in the world – The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August.
This year’s show at the Fringe will feature songs and stories from his years with fellow Country man Van Morrison who executively produced Brian’s iconic version of ‘Crazy Love’ for the sound track of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’. Of course Brian’s show will also include a walk though his own considerable catalogue of work from his debut album ‘The Great War Of Words’ in 1990 to his original version of ‘You Raise Me Up’ with Secret Garden and many many more.
Each night will be slightly different and the audience are encouraged to help direct the questions in between songs. Even if you think you know Brian Kennedy or you’re a first timer, seeing him LIVE in concert is the only way to appreciate this incredibly diverse artist

Brian announces the release of his new album
Out Friday 24th Nov on download and Friday 1st Dec on C
Brian has recorded his first ever collection of his most beloved Christmas songs and the results are stunning.
'Christmassy' includes Brian’s unique versions of classic Christmas songs like 'Silent Night/ Oiche Chuin', 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' and 'In the Bleak Midwinter'. He has also put his original stamp on more recent festive favourites like the haunting 'River' by Joni Mitchell and a tribute to the late George Michael with 'Last Christmas'.
He also revisits an old friendship in Kirsty MacColl with 'Fairytale of New York', and he couldn’t resist Slade’s 'Merry Christmas Everybody'. There’s even an original song written with Brendan Murphy [The 4 of us] called 'Christmas Morning'. Available now on iTunes

On the first Monday of each month, Pat and his panel which is made up of Brian Kennedy, former Fianna Fáil TD and author Mary O’Rourke, pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by Eason Book Buyer Stephen Boylan.
In the last week of every month the panel will return to discuss the book on air and engage in a lively debate on the characters and themes of the chosen book.
