About this Event

"The tortured soul has seldom sounded so silvery"​ ​RnR Magazine 4/5****

"A lush sounding, stylishly orchestrated collection of songs with a distinctive voice" F​ atea

These powerful songs have been beautifully crafted by Ultan Conlon, his talents honed over two decades of writing his own material, and playing it live to a growing legion of followers. His voice, strong yet fragile, has been likened by some to that of Roy Orbison. F​ rom Galway, he has also performed many times on Irish national radio and television.​

Ultan’s back catalogue – two EPs and three studio albums to date - have received extensive international radio airplay, inclusion on the award-winning movie, Songs For Amy, as well as receiving numerous positive reviews from critics-turned-fans. He has also performed on Irish national television and radio several times.

2020 will see Ultan release his latest album THERE’S A WALTZ,​ produced by acclaimed Bluegrass and Grammy winner S​ ean Watkins (​Nicklecreek)​.ThealbumwasrecordedinLAatthe storied Heritage Studios in just over two days to capture that timeless sound and classic album feel. Ultan recorded the album with some of the top

session players in Los Angeles including D​ on Heffington​ - Drums (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Ron Sexsmith, Percy Sledge), S​ ebastian Steinberg​ - Bass, Double Bass (Iron and Wine, Neil Diamond, Neil Finn, KD Lang), G​ abe Witcher​ - Fiddle (Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, Paul Simon, Beck), R​ ich Hinman​ - Pedal Steel. (KD Lang, St.Vincent), S​ ara Watkins​ - Backing Vocals (Nicklecreek, I'm With Her, Watkins Family Hour) and T​ yler Chester​ - B3, Piano (Jackson Browne,

Andrew Bird). The album was mixed in Nashville by Collin Dupuis and mastered at RCA by John Baldwin.

The album came to fruition after a series of trips to LA where Ultan played to a sold out Viper Rooms and performed at LA’s most prestigious venue, Largo, on one occasion sharing a stage with J​ ackson Browne​ and ​Shelby Lynn​ to perform a rendition of N​ eil Young’s​ ‘Long May You Run’.

Last Days Of The Night Owl, Ultan’s third studio offering in 2018 took Ultan’s songs to a much wider audience and was played extensively on national radio broadcasters including RTE, Lyric FM and Newstalk as well as enjoying extensive airplay in the UK on BBC Radio. The single ‘The Measure’ reached No.1 in the airplay charts, and remainedthereforanincredible5weeks.ThefollowupsinglefeaturingM​ary Coughlan​ also reached the top of the RTE Radio 1 Airplay Charts and the album itself was made ‘Album of the Week’ on both RTE Radio 1 and also on Marty Whelan’s morning show on Lyric FM.

Having shared the stage with the likes of John Fogerty, Mavis Staples, Bryan Ferry, John Grant, Eddi Reader, Patty Griffin and Richard Hawley, Ultan has also performed duets with Glen Hansard and John Martyn. The latter Scottish folk legend later went onto record one of Ultan’s early works, Really Gone, in 2005.

“There’s an appealing rockabilly sensibility at work on Ultan Conlon’s single ‘The Measure’ that has something of Paul Simon-meets-Elvis about it”.​ ​Hot Press
