In October 2001, Paul Brady played twenty-three successive gigs in the legendary Dublin venue, Vicar St., bringing together a glorious array of guest artists from around the globe including Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison, Sinéad O'Connor, Ronan Keating, Curtis Stigers, Gavin Friday & Maurice Seezer, Eleanor McEvoy, Brian Kennedy, Moya Brennan, Mary Black, Maura O'Connell and many more. This album is the first definitive document celebrating those Vicar St. nights, already part of musical folklore. Paul Brady is one of Ireland's most highly regarded and successful artists. He crosses musical boundaries again and again, incorporating folk, rock, blues traditional Irish & classic pop styles into his songwriting. His live performances, whether solo or with full band, include songs from his extensive catalog of 40 years. Often classified as a musicians' musician, Paul Brady's songs have been covered by a huge array of major artists, amongst them Tina Turner, Cher, Carole King, Art Garfunkel, Bonnie Raitt, Joe Cocker, Cliff Richard, Trisha Yearwood and Phil Collins and, closer to home, Ronan Keating, Joe Dolan, Dickie Rock, Maura O'Connell, Liam Clancy and Mary Black. Songs such as The Island, Crazy Dreams, Nothing But The Same Old Story, Nobody Knows, Follow On, The Long Goodbye, The Homes of Donegal and Paradise Is Here have, over the years, given joy and emotional sustenance to generations of Irish at home and abroad. An evening with Paul Brady on stage is a captivating experience, as he invites you into his world of songs and music in a way that will surprise in its intimacy, sense of fun and raw power. By now a well-loved 'elder statesman' of the Irish musical community, he continues to garner respect and admiration from today's younger writers and performers. Glen Hansard, Imelda May, Wallis Bird, Declan O'Rourke and new kid on the block Hozier are among the many that hold him in high regard.
