In a highly respected career, spanning several stunning solo albums including the recent release Walking On Green Corn. Speaking about the L.P’s inspirations Phillips has stated “History and legend have often found their way into my songs. But sometimes, I don’t have to look quite so far to find inspiration.”

Completing the line-up will be singer-songwriter and Giant Sand band member Howe Gelb. Gelb is currently touring his latest solo record The Coincidentalist. Commenting on the concept behind the album, the musician expalined “The Coincidentalist is someone who can read the coincidences but who doesn’t try to figure out their meaning. For if one tries to figure out the meaning it will be lost. The coincidences aren’t there to figure out but to point the way.”

Tickets for Grant-Lee Phillips and Howe Gelb’s show in Whelan’s on Saturday, October 11th are priced at €28 and will go sale this Friday (March 14th) at 9am. For more information visit
