Source the Irish Times/Facebook John Keane: Irishman to perform on Sunday night Irish singer John Keane performs at a public opening in Dublin on November 9, 2019.
The performance is the latest of a number of shows in the capital that will be broadcast live on Irish broadcaster RTE.
Keane, who was born in Newry, Co Dublin, and raised in County Cork, will play at the National Theatre on Sunday.
Keane is the second Irish performer to appear in the national theatre.
Irish singer and songwriter John Seán Keane will perform at the Royal Dublin Theatre in Dublin, on Sunday, November 9.
It will be his third appearance at the theatre.
“It’s always a dream come true to perform in front of the Royal, the Royal Theatre and the Royal Belfast Theatre,” Keane told RTE on Monday.
Keane said the experience was “really special” and he was looking forward to performing again.
He said he was excited to “get on with my life” and was “not worried” about the future of his music.
“I don’t want to stop doing what I’m doing,” he said.
Keane also said he had been “trying to stay out of the spotlight for quite some time”.
Keane’s career began in the 1970s as a songwriter for the folk music group the Severn Valley Strings.
He worked with such groups as the O’Brians, the Severe Brothers and the Roddy O’Brien Sisters.
“They were all my favourite groups.
I just really loved them,” he told the Irish Independent in November 2016.
He later went on to write for the popular TV series The Irish Times, The Irish Independent and the Irish Channel.
Keane later wrote his autobiography The Irish Years and is currently the owner of Dublin’s National Theatre.
Keane’s most recent release, The Road to the Theatre, was released in January 2018.
