Joe will be taking a break from recording his new album to perform his first solo set since 2012, when he opens for Gemma Hayes at Whelan's in Dublin on Saturday June 27th. This will be the first opportunity to hear some of the songs set to appear on the forthcoming record, provisionally titled The Easter Vigil.
The following night, Joe joins Pat Barrett for a stripped-back Hedge Schools performance to support the new album launch of Gavin Glass, also at Whelan's.
Joe will be touring later in the year with singer-songwriter Freddie Stevenson, opening for The Waterboys on their Modern Blues tour of Europe.
Finally, here's a new film of Joe with Gemma Hayes in Paris recently, playing Shock To My System at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris.
