Some good news for a Monday lunchtime, with a Workhorse favourite returning to Dublin. The world’s most under appreciated singer songwriter, Mark Eitzel returns to our shores for a night of solo acoustic music. He tells a lot of stories when he plays by himself, so expect to hear the weirdest selection of tales from life in San Francisco and beyond. If you haven’t seen him before, treat yourself…

Mark Eitzel is heading out on the road solo acoustic for the first time in over seven years this August where he will be playing some old classics along brand new songs he will be recording live for his new album. Mark quit playing solo shows back in 2007 after a breakdown on stage in Spain where he then went on to tour with pianists and bands backing him. One of Mark’s best albums “Songs of Love” features him with just acoustic guitar laying his songs bare so its great to have him back. Mark plays the Button Factory on August 21st. Tickets on sale from Ticketmaster.ie, Tickets.ie + Ticket ABC.
Mark Eitzel has released over 15 albums of original material with his band American Music Club and as a solo artist. The Guardian has called him “America’s Greatest Living Lyricist” and Rolling Stone once gave him their Songwriter of the Year award. Originally formed in 1983, American Music Club released seven albums before breaking up in 1995 and finally reuniting in 2004 for two more albums. His live set consists of a mixture of songs from his rich catalog, including selections from American Music Club as well as newer material. Renowned for his self-deprecating sense of humor, Mark’s live shows are always unique and unpredictable in the best possible way.
