The Black Gate gig on Thursday 28th March will be part of Ultan Conlon’s first Irish tour in March to promote his new single ‘In the Blink of an Eye’ which was produced by John Douglas ( Trashcan Sinatras) and Boo Hewerdine. Ultan Conlon will also play Dublin on March 23rd at Whelan’s and Coughlan’s in Cork on March 15th.
2018 was a very successful year for Ultan Conlon with a series of big shows at the
3 Arena as guest of John Fogerty and at the Trinity College Summer Series at the
invitation of Bryan Ferry. Ultan’s third studio album ‘Last Days of the Night Owl’ was
chosen ‘Album of the Week’ on RTE Radio 1 last April with two singles from the album,
’The Measure’ and ‘A Weak Heart Like Mine’ ( duet with Mary Coughlan), each receiving
extensive radio airplay last summer and autumn.
“ ‘Last Days of the Night Owl’ has a timeless quality, reminiscent of Richard Hawley,
combining lyrical expressions of fragility within a sumptuous musical setting”.
