Gemma Hayes – Acoustic Show

After her sold out Whale Theatre show back in 2022, Gemma Hayes returns to Greystones this summer. This very special acoustic show from one one Ireland’s best loved singer/songwriters, will feature songs from her new album “Blind Faith” as well as other hits from her extensive back catalogue.

Over the last year, Gemma has been busy touring, bringing her stirring live show to crowds that span generations. Gemma spent Autumn playing to audiences solo as well as with fellow living legends Lisa Hannigan and Paul Noonan. She recently sold out London’s Omeara and Dublin’s Whelan’s as part of a UK and Ireland tour. Gemma has been a cornerstone of the John Prine Celebration Shows at Dublin’s Vicar Street and she performed the legendary artist’s song ‘Summer’s End’ on RTÉ’s The Tommy Tiernan Show.

 Gemma Hayes’ debut album Night On My Side was released in 2002, for which she won Best Female Artist at the Hot Press Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination. Since then, she has released four critically acclaimed studio albums and a limited-edition live album. The Business Post recently praised Gemma as “a songwriter whose work pivots between serious life experiences and an indie folk/rock style influenced as much by Nick Drake as My Bloody Valentine.”
