About the event

GEMMA HAYES

 

Beloved singer-songwriter and national treasure Gemma Hayes announces her 2024 tour dates across Ireland as well as her single ‘Feed the Flames’.

 

The award-winning musician says of the track:

“I originally began writing the song after watching Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Knowing a bit about their relationship off screen I was really taken by the depth of their connection, it was a living, breathing fire. What I got from delving into their relationship is that you can love something or someone so much only for your human fallibility to come along and destroy it.”

 

‘Feed the Flames’ follows Gemma’s exceptional single ‘High & Low’, her first new music in nearly a decade. Music tastemaker Tony Clayton-Lea declared ‘High & Low’ an “emotional gut-punch of a song,” and it has racked up over 1 million radio impacts in Ireland alone since release.

 

Over the last year, Gemma has been busy touring, bringing her stirring live show to crowds that span generations. Gemma spent Autumn playing to audiences solo as well as with fellow living legends Lisa Hannigan and Paul Noonan. She recently sold-out London’s Omeara and Dublin’s Whelan’s as part of a UK and Ireland tour. Gemma has been a cornerstone of the John Prine Celebration Shows at Dublin’s Vicar Street, and she performed the legendary artist’s song ‘Summer’s End’ on RTÉ’s The Tommy Tiernan Show.
