David Kitt @ The Courthouse Arts Centre @ Courthouse Arts Centre

Accompanied by Margie Jean Lewis on violin, David will be playing a mix of tracks from his previous albums and some brand new material. This concert will be one of the few chances to catch him live in Ireland this year.

David Kitt is an Irish musician/producer that crosses multiple genres. He has released six studio albums to date, from his quietly magnetic 2001 debut Small Moments, through the expansive ambient textures and looping pop mantras of The Big Romance, through Square One, covers album The Black & Red Notebook, Not Fade Away , The Nightsaver (2009) and his most recent release Yous (2018).

David’s father and uncles formed a successful touring folk group when he was young so he grew up surrounded by music, and he himself began performing live sets while studying music technology at Trinity College, Dublin. He recorded and mixed the seven tracks of his debut release in his bedroom and this debut LP, the quietly magnetic Small Moments (Rough Trade) was followed by the expansive ambient textures and looping pop mantras of The Big Romance (Blanco y Negro, 2001); his biggest selling record.

During this period he extensively toured the UK and mainland Europe, gracing the stage with record collection heroes such as Television, Yo La Tengo, Arab Strap and Tindersticks, and was invited by David Bowie to perform at the Bowie curated Meltdown Festival at Royal Festival Hall in 2002.

An artist who is willing to explore and diversify, his musical creativity brought him into electronica with his alter ego New Jackson. He has also worked with David Grey, toured with Tindersticks and collaborated with Fedah and Kean Kavanagh for Three’s Made by Music campaign.
