Lir Perform a Nick Drake Tribute in Aid of Aware


Local singer songwriter and member of the band Lir DAVID McGUINNESS talks to Noel McGuinness about the forthcoming Nick Drake Tribute concert in aid of Aware Ireland.

David says that Nick Drake, who died tragically young forty years ago, was a huge influence on many modern singer songwriters. His lyrics cover the whole gamut of human emotions and his musicality was unparalleled.

Aware is the charity that provides information on depression for many people: these include individuals who are experiencing depression or related mood disorders; those who are concerned for a family member or friend; people who are seeking to learn more about the condition, and also those who may be wondering if depression could be a factor for them.

The gig is at the Grand Social in Dublin city centre near the Ha’penny Bridge.
