Blues-rock artist Son of Dave has been confirmed to play the Button Factory in Dublin this summer on Saturday, May 3rd.
The Canadian blues musician, and ex-Crash Test Dummies member, will play his first Irish show in 6 years as he tours his fifth album Blues at the Grand. Speaking about his latest record Son of Dave (a.k.a Benjamin Darvill) stated “I decided I was going to make a happier record and stop screaming about the hell I was in. I won the trust and custody of my kid, I won the hearts of audiences and I finally found a good woman. I have a new baby in a blues ranch on the hill, and I will fight anyone who says that isn’t cool as fuck. The hardest road you can take is full of love and sacrifice; sticking your neck out to do something different.”
With his pounding blend of beat-box blues and screeching harmonica Son of Dave’s live performances are an energetic take on the genre.
Tickets to see Son of Dave at the Button Factory in Dublin on May 3rd are priced at €10 and are on sale now. For more information visit ticketmaster.ie. Doors at 7.30pm.
