Jack LAthy musician Jack L is one man who certainly needs no introduction, having returned triumphant from this year’s Edinburgh Festival (the biggest in the world) where he walked away with The Best Music Award, Riverbank is delighted to welcome this unstoppable talent back for what will be two fantastic nights with The Best of Jack L.

What a year for Jack L- a top three album, The Essential Collection, a bestselling novel built around his song lyrics by writer Anna McPartland, called So What If I’m Not Broken, a critically acclaimed performance with the Brooklyn Philharmonic in Manhattan, in front of 15,000 people this summer, a nomination for “Male Vocalist Of The Year” at the Meteor Awards, a sell out run at Dublin’s Vicar St. Venue and now the Edinburgh Festival Best Music Award. The Story So Far –The Essential Collection has gone double platinum and this show is based on the greatest hits collection.

This Kildare musician does not put a foot wrong and now fans will have the chance to see him in his home county over two nights at Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge.

An acoustic show with piano accompaniment, it promises to be a very special night to uplift the spirits for the coming year. For tickets call Riverbank Arts Centre on 045 448327 or visit
