Jack Lukeman is one of Ireland's most respected and best-loved performers. Described as

'a mixture of all the remarkable voices of the 20th century' (The

Guardian).

Jack has had several platinum-selling albums year after year. His single largest show was broadcast live on national television in front of a 5,400 audience at Dublin's Point Theatre.

In 2017 Jack's album, "Magic Days", was a massive hit in Ireland with two sold-out nights at Dublin's National Concert Hall and Vicar St. From 2017-19, Jack has been touring continually internationally with artists such as Imelda May, Jools Holland and The Proclaimers. His most new album 'Streamed: the Best of the Lockdown Sessions' features songs that first appeared on a hugely popular weekly live stream (in which each week Jack would learn the songbook of artists that had influenced him (Dylan, Bowie, Cohen etc.) and perform a ninety-minute special live each Saturday night. His fans then voted on their favourite tracks, and Jack then re-recorded the fifteen most popular choices. The 18th month series of Jack streams has had over 400,000 views. Jack is currently recording his new album of original material for release in 2022.

Organiser Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre

Organiser of Jack L Matinee

Nestled at the foot of the old Ballykeeffe Quarry,and just ten minutes outside Kilkenny city, Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre is run entirely by volunteers and brings the authentic atmosphere of an open-air Italian theatre to the rolling Kilkenny countryside. The once-bustling slate quarry had lain abandoned and in disarray for many years, with most indifferent to its very existence.

 Lying beneath Ballykeeffe Woodland Nature Reserve which stretches to the edge of the quarry, the Amphitheatre now boasts a state-of-the-art steel canopy which perfectly compliments the astounding natural acoustics of the deep quarry walls, providing a magical experience for those attending the array of musical and theatrical performances hosted here.
