Christy Dignam along with Aslan co-founder, and lifelong friend Joe Jewell bring their intimate acoustic show “Some Songs and Stories” to Donaghmore. The show features all the famous Aslan songs plus many songs by other artists that influenced Christy and Joe throughout their career with Aslan. The lads tell some great stories about their lives in Irelands famous rock band Aslan.
The show is a must for any fan of Aslan, and it is really a very special treat to experience this great show in such an intimate theatre environment. Christy Dignam is regarded as one of Irelands greatest singers and performers ever. Despite Christy’s recent health scare, he is still performing and has never sounded better.
U2’s Bono is a big fan of Christy, and has said about Christy “What a voice, what a voice, the Angel of Dublin “. U2 invited Christy to perform with them at their recent sold out Dublin gigs, but Christy had a prior engagement at a charity fundraiser show ,and had to turn down the invite from the Ireland’s biggest rock export.
There is some great humour to be heard in many of the stories that Christy and Joe tell. It’s two lifelong friends since childhood in Finglas, Dublin who lived the rock and roll dream, and survived to tell the tale.
